Haiku Organizations

Are you a member of any of the following organizations? They typically provide a newsletter, journal, and other benefits as part of your membership, so do consider joining! Their journals provide some of the best haiku being written in English today. Their newsletters provide useful information about readings, publications, conferences, contests, and other events relating to haiku poetry. In addition, I also recommend subscribing to Modern Haiku and other independent haiku journals. The haiku community is very active, passionate, and closely connected around the world. If you would prefer to try out smaller or more local haiku organizations near where you live, please contact Michael Dylan Welch for suggestions.
