ihpd

 

IHPD is almost here — just one month to go till April 17! This year will be a bit different, of course, given our current situation. All of us at The Haiku Foundation are hoping you and your loved ones are well, taking the necessary precautions, and finding inspiration in your adjustments to circumstance. We look forward to your participation in this year’s event. Here are the details so far:

HaikuLife Haiku Film Festival.

Time to be pulling your haiku film together. We look forward to sharing your HaikuLife, video haiga, or other haiku video production with the haiku community. In-hand deadline: 10 April.

EarthRise Rolling Haiku Collaboration.

The United Nations has designated 2020 as the Year of the Nurse. They couldn’t have known how appropriate this would turn out to be. Who better to be commemorated in this time of pandemic? Plan to share one poem or many in the world’s largest collaborative poem.

Local Haiku Celebrations.

We anticipate your haiku gatherings will be remote this year, but we still want to hear about them. Send us the details and we’ll list your event as part of the IHPD2019 celebrations. Information deadline 10 April.

Be a part of it — celebrate International Haiku Poetry Day, April 17.

  1. I find Haiku Life very attractive, remarkable is the presentation of Nature in it. Rolling Haiku Collaboration too is quite attractive. Where to submit poems if one wishes to participate?

      There’ll be a separate announcement closer to the date about the Rolling Haiku Collaboration. We simply use the comment boxes when the announcement is posted. All comments are then collated by The Haiku Foundation and released as a pdf anthology.

      warm regards,

  2. Call of the Page is planning a special offer, and free, for any self-isolating haiku poets.

    For now, the best hand-washing song and video is by these two young guys from Vietnam:
    Only 42 seconds, and you can always stop washing before the song ends, but continue to dance!

    Or Gangnam style, also with no time-wasting adverts:

    Please stay safe, use soap, and write haiku, and even work on a haiku collection too!
