Celebrate International Haiku Day 17th April, 2020. Advance Notice.

The Australian Haiku Society encourages haiku poets to take part in activities to celebrate International Haiku Poetry Day.

We welcome haiku poets worldwide to contribute to the String, on the theme of Solitude.

The String will open on Friday 17th April in the Southern Hemisphere and remain open for contributions until Sunday 19th April to accommodate international poets who may wish to take part. Contributions may be made on the website during these dates (not before).
