National Haiku Writing Month (NaHaiWriMo) starts in just a week. Are you ready? If you’ll be joining in this year, be prepared to write one haiku a day for each day during the month of February—make it a daily habit. To give you a basic overview of haiku techniques and traditions, please read “Becoming a Haiku Poet” and some of the links at “Further Reading” (on Michael Dylan Welch's Graceguts site, devoted chiefly to haiku). Read these essays and get a head start on February by starting to write your daily haiku now. Join us!
