Washington Poets Association


The Washington Poets Association was founded in 1971 to foster appreciation in all forms of poetry. The association held one-off haiku contests in 1973, 1980, and 1994, and in 2004 at the urging of Michael Dylan Welch created the annual Francine Porad Contest named after longtime poet, editor, and founder of the Haiku Northwest group. Haiku Northwest cosponsored the contest in 2008 and 2010.
