G’day, kia ora and hello,
poetry from the edge
Being held via Zoom from October 7-9, 2022, this new initiative to connect writers from New Zealand, Australia and beyond will use workshops, prompted writing sessions and presentations to celebrate our seasons, people, landscapes and seascapes, vernacular language, and flora and fauna.
Organisers: Leanne Mumford and Carole Harrison (Australia); Sandra Simpson, Sue Courtney and Sherry Grant (New Zealand).
We are pleased to announce that we are ready to receive proposals for presentations and workshops at Haiku Down Under, taking place online from October 7-9, 2022. All the information you require (we hope) is on the Proposals page on our website.
While we are keen to have proposals from people living in New Zealand and Australia, or from Kiwis and Australians living outside their countries of birth, we would also be delighted to receive proposals from people living in other parts of the world. We want to deliver the best ‘learning-gathering’ we can.
And although haiku is our main focus, we are open to proposals focusing on senryu, linked verse, haibun, haiga, tanka, tanka prose, etc.
The deadline for making a proposal is 5pm (your time) on March 31.
Please get in touch if you have any questions.
on behalf of the Haiku Down Under team
