HNA, Cherry Blossoms, & Editing Haiku

Registration information for Haiku North America 2009 has been posted. HNA will be held in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada on August 5th through the 9th. The theme for this biannual event is "Crosscurrents."

The results of the annual Vancouver Cherry Blossom Festival Haiku Invitational have been posted. Congratulations to the winning poets! and a hearty thank you to all involved in making this event possible.

I happened across a web page today entitled The Writer's Way: Editing Poetry. I thought you might be interested in the poem the author uses to illustrate her point.

Will English language haiku ever overcome elementary school teachings?

I read the article. The "haiku" went from bad to worse. A lesson in what not to do when writing haiku.
