Heights Arts names new Haiku master
It's not every year that the Haiku Death Match rolls into town. Heights Arts's Oct. 10 competition at Dobama Theatre was a huge success, with 12 competitors from the far corners of Cleveland vying for the title of 2015 Haiku Master. Haiku topics included nature, politics, food, sex, drugs and rock & roll. Marc Zeale of Euclid captured the title from past master and NASA physicist Geoffrey A. Landis, winning the match with a haiku about the city of Cleveland. Proceeds from the event fund Heights Arts's upcoming literary events.
