Mission Statement

The mission of The Haiku Foundation is threefold:

    1) to archive our first century of English-language haiku,

      2) to expand possibilities for our second, and

      3) to seek active exchange with other haiku languages and cultures around the world.


    All other haiku groups — from journals to societies to conferences — have been created to help the individual poet realize his or her creative dream, be it education, publication or social contact. The Haiku Foundation does not follow this model. THF instead is a series of projects organized not for poets per se, but for haiku itself. The realization of these projects will in due course help all haiku poets. The Haiku Foundation is where poets go when they want to give back.
