Some rules of engagement

We wanted not to impose any rules on our contributors, but it seems we need to say a few preliminary words.

The blog starts on August 1st [12.01 am GMT] so please don't post work before -- the summer haiku blog is still open until then.

We are celebrating the unfolding of autumn so the work posted should reflect this.

Any photography posted should either be the original work of the sender, or a collaboration, in which case it is the sender's responsibility to ensure that they have permission to use the work.

It will run from August 1st to October 30th 2006.

The blog is a follow-on from Ukku Spring Haiku and Summer Haiku.
