About Childhood’s 2016

Not Nearly Annual

Frozen Fishhead Comic Haiku Contest


I’ll announce the photo prompt in April, following which it will be open season for one month. Please do not write to the decapitated fish prompt. The fish head is the contest’s famed moniker.

The rules and fan-ta-bulous prize money will be the same as in previous years. The photo prompt will be different.

Step up to the bar and check under “Haiku.” Not much will change except (TO REPEAT) the dates and the photo prompt. That said, brush off those 17 syllables, and keep me in mind:




Author: allehall

I am a writer. I write to explore childhood: literary essays and short fiction, journalism, and three haiku. My published work expresses my belief that everything which did or did not happen to me as a child is manifesting in everything that is or is not happening to me today. More importantly, it is also manifesting for my children. I believe funny is the new navel-gazing, and that the best funny keeps a penny's worth of serious in an accessible pocket. Little-known fact: I have a completed novel decorating the inside of a desk drawer. Perhaps it is not funny enough.
