Paper Wasp


The Paper Wasp group was founded in Australia in the late 1980s by Jacqui Murray, Ross Clark and John Knight, originally to foster local understanding of haiku, but has since reached out to other countries. The journal Paper Wasp began publication in 1995 and publishes haiku, senryu, renga, and tanka. In 1999 the group sponsored the first annual Jack Stamm Haiku Award, in commemoration of the American haijin and Japanese resident who mentored the group in the early years.
