Last Chance: Write a Haiku, Win a Pass to the Hopscotch Design Festival


By Stephanie Murg Comment


Time is running out to be tersely poetic and craft the haiku that will win you a free pass to the Hopscotch Design Festival, which runs September 3-4 in Raleigh, North Carolina. The designtastic new companion to the Hopscotch Music Festival boasts a speaker line-up that includes OMA’s Shohei Shigematsu, Kai-Uwe Bergmann of Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG), Casey Caplowe of GOOD, Alexander Isley, and other inspiring figures in the worlds of graphic design, user experience design, urban planning, technology, architecture, and more.

To be eligible to win one of the two run-of-the-festival passes ($150 each) that we’re giving away thanks to, write a haiku—we’ll take the standard five-seven-five syllables—about the Hopscotch Design Festival presenter or session you’re most interested in seeing. E-mail your minimalist poem to with the subject “HOPSCOTCH” by 10 p.m. EST tonight (Wednesday, August 27th). Winners will be notified within 24 hours.
