Can you write about quantum physics in just three lines? To celebrate Quantum Shorts, EQuS is challenging students and adults around the world to describe the wonder of quantum physics in 17 syllables through haiku.
The prize is a one-year digital subscription to the Scientific American.
Each poem you submit needs to be in the form of haiku – that is, they must be three lines long and should only be seventeen syllables. Sound tricky? Here’s a guide and some quantum resources (and a generator).
Entries open on October 15, 2015. All entries must be submitted by 23:59 AEST on October 23, 2015 and the winning entry will be announced by the end of October. All poems may be used for promotional purposes. Authors will be acknowledged whenever the poem is published. The winner may be asked to provide a photo.
