Save the date! Haiku North America 2011 will be held August 3 to 7, 2011, in Seattle, Washington.
Members of the Haiku Northwest group have generously offered to host the 2011 conference and they have many exciting plans already in the works, including a harbor cruise.
The conference itself will be held at the Seattle Center, at the foot of the Space Needle, providing easy access to haiku writing and walking opportunities such as Pike Place Market (via the monorail), the Olympic Sculpture Park, the Experience Music Project rock-and-roll museum and Science Fiction Museum, and countless other attractions—including fleet week and the Seafair festival, with the Blue Angels performing overhead.
The conference theme will be “Fifty Years of Haiku,” celebrating the past, present, and future of haiku in North America.
Detailed information on registration, lodging, and the conference schedule will be available in March.
