Haiku Society of America meeting March 26-27


Ce Rosenow, president of the Haiku Society of America (HSA), has asked Haiku San Diego to host HSA officers and colleagues in their first-quarter 2011 national meeting, Saturday March 26th and Sunday March 27th, 2011.

Haiku San Diego is one of the newest haiku groups in the United States, and HSA officers are eager to meet and interact with us, to experience our part of the world, and to share in our energy and haiku enthusiasm.

Saturday's program is evolving and not yet ready to be announced, but will involve introductions, presentations, interactive dialogue, and readings. We'll plan a no-host dinner at a restaurant local to the meeting site (TBA). For Sunday we'll plan a ginko walk, followed by a no-host lunch. There "may" be a Friday night (March 25th) welcoming activity, as yet to be discussed.

FOR NOW, please reserve the weekend of March 25, 26, and 27 and plan to attend this major quarterly event. It's a great opportunity to meet some of our HSA officers, each an accomplished haiku poet . . . like Ce Rosenow (HSA President), Michael Dylan Welch (HSA 1st Vice President), Angela Terry (HSA Secretary), and Susan Antolin (HSA Newsletter Editor) . . . and possibly more.

We of course specially invite and welcome members of our sister group to the north, the Southern California Haiku Study Group. And, we will also let members of the Yuki Teikei Haiku Society, Haiku Poets of Northern California, and the Central Valley Haiku Club know of this gathering in hopes that other of our fellow haiku poets might join us.

Please make an extra special effort to attend as much of the weekend's activities as possible. We'll keep you posted as plans come together.

Warm regards to all,

Naia and Billie Dee
