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:




By Alle C Hall, writer!

Alle C. Hall’s flash fiction placed as a finalist for The 2020 Lascaux Prize. Longer work appears most recently in Dale Peck’s Evergreen Review; as well as in Tupelo Quarterly, Creative Nonfiction Magazine, Brevity (blog), and Another Chicago Magazine. Formerly an associate editor at Vestal Review, Alle's additional “wins” include: a Best of the Net nomination; First Place in The Richard Hugo House New Works Competition; and finalist or semi-finalist in the contests of: Boulevard Magazine, Creative Nonfiction Magazine, Hippocampus, and Memoir Magazine.

Claim to fame: interviewed Leonard Nimoy. He was a bit of a pill; disappointing.
