Every autumn since 2008, I’ve been directing the Seabeck Haiku Getaway at the Seabeck Conference Center in Seabeck, Washington. This retreat has welcomed members of the Haiku Northwest group, and other haiku poets from farther afield for a long weekend of haiku sharing and discussion. Our featured speakers for the first seven years have been Emiko Miyashita, Penny Harter, Charles Trumbull, John Stevenson, Paul Miller, Marco Fraticelli, and Alan Pizzarelli. The following are group photos from each of our first five retreats.
