Welcome to Haiku North America
The 2013 Haiku North America (HNA) Conference was held August 14-18, 2013, on board the historic Queen Mary ocean liner, permanently docked in Long Beach, California.
Haiku North America (HNA) is the largest and oldest gathering of haiku poets in the United States and Canada. There are no membership fees and HNA provides breaking news and interaction at the HNA blog. All haiku poets and interested parties are welcome. It is a long weekend of papers, panels, workshops, readings, performances, book sales, and much socialization with fellow poets, translators, scholars, editors, and publishers. Both established and aspiring haiku poets are welcome. HNA conferences take place every two years.
Haiku North America is a 501(c)3 nonprofit corporation based in California. It is independent of all other haiku organizations.
