NOHS Members Attend the HSA Southern Region Conference

Haiku Society of America - Southern Region Conference

On November 4-5, 2010, five members of the New Orleans Haiku Society attended the Southern Regional Conference of the Haiku Society of America: Allison, Bob, Chibi, David, Juliet and Nicholas. It was a splendid meeting. David gave a workshop on ways to read avant-garde haiku ("Atom Heart Mother" quickly became the weekend's buzz-word). There was also an editing workshop, a haiku walk in woods that emitted dragon-breath steam from deep in the earth, a Japanese-style kukai (a sort of contest/critique session) and, among other highlights, a visit from Haiku Elvis, performed by Carlos Colon.
