Haiku Society of America


The Haiku Society of America was founded in New York City in 1968 by Harold G. Henderson and Leroy Kanterman.
The largest haiku society in the West, it has met regularly since then and has since expanded to all fifty states and includes many overseas members. The society publishes the journal Frogpond three times a year which includes haiku, senryu, haibun, articles, book reviews, and more. Additionally the society publishes a thrice-yearly newsletter and annual members anthology. In 1976 the society created a haiku contest in honor of founder Harold G. Henderson. In 1988 a senryu contest was added.
