Plans for International Haiku Poetry Day 2017



IHPD is coming soon — April 17 — and we hope you’re planning to participate. Here are the details so far:

HaikuLife Haiku Film Festival.

It’s never too early to begin work on your haiku film. 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 2017 as the Year of Sustainable Tourism for Development. We don’t think this is a particularly apt theme for EarthRise, and so, in this time of political animus, we’ve selected Reconciliation as our topic. Plan to share one poem or many in the world’s largest collaborative poem.

Local Haiku Celebrations.

Planning a special meeting? A meeting of your local haiku society? Any other haiku-related event? April 17 is a Monday this year, so we would anticipate that local gatherings will take place on the weekend prior.Send us the details and we’ll list it as part of the IHPD2017 celebrations. Information deadline 10 April.

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