Haiku Writing Prompts, Dialogue and Information Curated by The Haiku Foundation’s Passionate Team of Contributors
Delve into the history of English-language haiku in the most direct way possible: by reading its poets. Each week a new digitized version of a book of haiku, recent or classic, is offered for your perusal, drawn from the Foundation’s extensive holdings. Host: Dan Campbell
Haiku of the Day (formerly Per Diem) is one of our most popular offerings. Guest editors are invited to create thematic galleries of poems which are then prominently featured on the site and are gathered into an archive. Host: Rob Scott.
A space specially designed for those of you just starting out on the journey of haiku. First things to read, study, look at and try yourselves, without judgment. We remember — we all start somewhere. Host: Julie Bloss Kelsey.
The Renku Sessions was created to offer a participatory activity that honors historical traditions while actively engaging contemporary practice. Poets participate in 12, 20 and 36-link renku, moderated by the leading Western sabaki of our day. Host: John Stevenson. See our Archive of Completed Renku.
The Haiku Foundation created the Touchstone Awards Series — considered the highest awards in the field — to reward excellence and innovation in the haiku genre in 2012, and has awarded them to the best individual haiku, and the best haiku publications, every year since.
