Haiku Neighbours

“Haiku Neighbours: North American Haiku Today” is the title of my keynote address for the 15th annual Haiku International Association conference, held 30 November 2013 in Tokyo. I’ve just added this speech to the Essays page (also linked to from the Speeches page), complete with a Japanese translation and a selection of photos from the event. This presentation outlines major successes and activities in contemporary North American haiku, and concludes with three problems that need greater attention.
