Haiku North America 2023: Call for Proposals
« on: December 06, 2022, 08:37:27 PM »
​Haiku North America is pleased to announce that its next conference, in person, will take place at the historic Netherland Plaza Hotel in Cincinnati, Ohio, from June 28 to July 2, 2023 with a tanka day on July 3.

The conference theme is "City and Soil," recognizing both urban and rural influences on haiku poetry. The sparkling Queen City in a Midwestern state known for vibrant urban centers, beautiful agrarian countryside, and a rich history of innovation. The juxtapositions between rural and urban offer a compelling geography in which to explore English-language haiku and related genres.  HNA 2023 invites proposals for presentations inspired by these inherent dualities—contemplating these spaces and traversing their boundaries.

HNA 2023 invites proposals for presentations, panels, writing sessions, and workshops. Proposals may be inspired by the inherent duality of the urban and the rural and/or by the idea of traversing the boundaries between these domains.  Proposals that make clear and substantial connections with the conference topic will be strongly considered. Likewise, compelling proposals that do not directly connect with the “City & Soil” theme but do illuminate some aspect of haiku or related genres (such as senryu, haibun, haiga) will be given strong consideration.

Some topics to consider:
     - Haiku and our connection to the land(scape)
     - Haiku and our cities (and cityscapes), urban issues
     - Blurring the boundaries between rural and urban, vanishing land(scape)
     - Innovation in haiku
     - Diversity and inclusion
