Anyone and everyone is welcome to contribute to The Sciku Project – join us and share the joy! If you are interested then send your sciku to:

Please follow these guidelines:

  • Whilst The Sciku Project takes a flexible approach to most haiku rules, please try to stick to the traditional 17 syllables and structure (or stretch out to a tanka if you feel it’s essential – check out the About page for more details).
  • Include a brief (no more than 100 words) explanation of the science behind your haiku. Generally this should be a sentence to describe the background and a sentence to explain the findings. What is it and why does it matter.
  • Provide links to the original research article to allow readers to find out more for themselves.
  • Provide links to your own website/webpage/twitter handle if you have them then, along with a brief bio (no more than 30 words) if you’d like.
  • The Sciku Project cannot pay for your contributions – The Sciku Project is a non-profit  website and does not earn any money.
  • Contributing authors retain the copyright for their own work.
  • All submitted haiku should be original to the author.
