Planning is well underway for our exciting 2018 Haiku Canada Weekend at Bishop’s University in Lennoxville, Quebec. Registration and Accommodation Information will be posted shortly on the Haiku Canada website.

Before we can finalize our Schedule, we still have some vacancies to fill. Please let us know if you are interested in taking part in the weekend in any of the following ways:

1. Four 15-minute slots for presentations, three on Saturday and one on Sunday morning, are still available. If you have an idea for a presentation, please send a brief proposal.

2. For our Round Table on How to Organize a Successful Haiku Group, we are looking for a maximum of four (4) haiku group leaders to talk about their experience—what works, what doesn’t.

3. For our Publishing Session on Sunday, we are looking for creative souls who have an original or different way of making a handmade book or chapbook and are willing to demonstrate how to make it.

4. Would you like to lead one of the two Anonymous Workshops. Let us know!

5. If you would like to read from your new book or chapbook, sign up for a 10-minute reading on Saturday evening (First come, first served!)

The deadline for all the above is January 31st.

Looking forward to seeing you in Lennoxville. (For those of you who need transportation from Montreal, let us know and we may be able to arrange a cheaper option than the Shuttle Bus.)
