Melissa King visited the office last week, and signed some of her popular “Leaving Home” posters. So, we’re going to have a contest! 

Write your best Earthbound haiku*, and you could win one of her signed posters! You can either respond here or post it on your own blog, but please remember to tag it with #leavinghomehaiku if you do or else I won’t see it! Also, please link back to this page; posts without links will not be considered.

I’ll be choosing my five favorite responses next Monday, the 15th of July. If your haiku is chosen, I’ll contact you for your shipping address. Anyone who doesn’t respond within three days loses their place, and I’ll choose another. 

RULES: We can only accept entries from users within the US, and you must be 18 or older to enter. Sorry! I’m also legally obligated to inform you that tumblr has nothing to do with this contest, and entries are submitted to Fangamer, not to tumblr.

Get writing! :D

*Haikus containing the word refrigerator will be immediately disqualified. NOT KIDDING.

Leaving Home Haiku Contest Winners!

I’ve selected the five winning haikus! In no particular order…

I was scared to leave
but now I’ve learned true strength

Ness, Dear, where are you?
please, are you getting my calls?
its almost winter

Four Friends Together
Who Are Now All Far Apart
Dear Friends, I miss you.

A meteor fell
Omen of a grim future
Four children saved us

Adventure awaits
I just listened to a bug
I’m leaving now, Mom

If the winners could please send their mailing addresses to orders@fangamer.com, we’ll get your prizes shipped out right away! Thanks to everyone who wrote us a poem! <3
