Haiku North America 2013 Program
It's here, and we couldn't be more excited about sharing it with you!
This is the cover of the Haiku North America 2013 Program, and each HNA 2013 attendee will have one in his/her conference packet.
The program is a beautiful thing, really . . . a keepsake of one of the most eagerly anticipated haiku conferences in recent past.
If only we could say, "Just CLICK ON THE COVER to read details about the many presentations, performances, panels, papers, and workshops scheduled from opening night Wednesday, August 14th through Sunday's closing, August 18th." But alas, the file is too large to share with you here.
We'd love to share information about our great line-up of keynote and featured presenters, including:
• Don McLeod, HNA Keynote Speaker and renowned Butoh performer, whose dynamic style of physical theatre and dance was developed by his training with artists including Marcel Marceau, Etienne Decroix, Jerzy Grotowski, and Sankai Juku.
• Steven D. Carter, the Yamato Ischihashi Chair in Japanese History and Civilization in the Department
of East Asian Languages and Cultures at Stanford University, and author of Haiku Before Haiku:
From the Renga Masters to Basho.
• Mitsuye Yamada, retired English professor, and author of Camp Notes and Other Writings (1976)
and Desert Run: Poems and Stories (1988)
• Satsuki Ina, Professor Emeritus at CSU Sacramento, and producer of two documentary films– Children
of the Camps, and From a Silk Cocoon: A Japanese American Renunciation Story
• Charles Trumbull, a past president of the Haiku Society of America, past editor of Modern Haiku,
and secretary of the New Mexico State Poetry Society
If only we could tell you about the Opening Day Ginko Walk led by Victor Ortiz, or the "Queen Mary's Haunted History" lecture that same night, delivered by the ship's Captain, or the "Transforming Free Verse and Prose Poems into Haibun" workshop by Penny Harter. There's a Sabiki Workshop by Kris Moon, who has already arrived from Japan, and an "Essence of Haiku" panel moderated by Roberta Beary and featuring Deborah Edler Brown, Richard Gilbert, and Patricia Machmiller.
Yes, all of these are listed in the schedule; but the vivid, compelling descriptions in the HNA 2013 Intervals Program bring them to life -- so much so we honestly believe attendees will find it difficult to choose!
