Write one haiku a day for the month of February! Why February? Because it’s the shortest month—for the world’s shortest genre of poetry. Join poets around the world who pledge to write at least one haiku a day for National Haiku Writing Month during the year’s shortest month. Or write haiku every day of every month, all year round, on the NaHaiWriMo site on Facebook, with daily writing prompts to inspire you.

  • NaHaiWriMo Takes a Village On this day of love, Valentine’s Day, I extend my gratitude and love to each of the following prompters for ten years of haiku inspiration. Over its ten-year history, NaHaiWriMo has had 103 different daily writing prompters. This includes people participating in three pass-the-baton months that had a different prompter every day.

  • Meet Our January 2020 Prompter, Kathabela Wilson It’s time for another Meet the Prompters interview! We’re pleased to present responses from our January 2020 NaHaiWriMo daily writing prompter, Kathabela Wilson. This is the third time she’s prompted for us (first time was in July of 2012). Read about her early poetic influences, a childhood poem about the moon and stars and sun, and her business of handmade jewelry. You can also enjoy three sample poems and learn how NaHaiWriMo, for Kathabela, is “a lifeline of creativity and community.” Thank you, Kathabela!
