Celebrating Haiku North America

Post date: May 29, 2014 6:15:2 AM

Haiku North America celebrates its 25th anniversary in 2015. Along with Garry Gay and others, I cofounded this conference in 1991, and it has been held every two years all over North America since then and is also a nonprofit corporation, of which I’m one of three directors. Newly added to the Digressions page is an overview of the Haiku North America conference, a place for great poetic and academic inspiration relating to haiku and related poetry. This new site addition lists all past conferences with dates and locations, conference directors, and conference anthology information, together with links to the introductions and sample poems for each anthology. The next HNA conference is coming up in October of 2015, in Schenectady, New York, and I look forward to attending once again.
