Win A Free Pass To Etsy Success Sydney

Craft site Etsy is one of our favourite places for selling online, and many crafty individuals have used the site as the basis for their own business. Etsy is running a one-day seminar on building your Etsy business, Etsy Success, in Sydney on June 2. Tickets are normally $100 each, but we have two to give away to Lifehacker readers.

Presenters at the event will include Etsy CEO Chad Dickerson, who will deliver the keynote speech. Other sessions will cover entrepreneurship, the importance of networking, how to effectively photograph and style your goods, and ways to promote yourself online. (Those are all topics Lifehacker enjoys, so we'll be attending as well.)

To win one of the two free passes we're giving away, write a haiku telling us why you want to attend and put it in the comments. (For our purposes, the haiku requirement is three lines with five, seven and five syllables respectively.)

The two entries we judge the most interesting or amusing will win each win a free pass to the event. The competition runs until 10am on Tuesday May 15, so get cracking! Full terms and conditions here.
