Haiku Canada Weekend
Activities include haiku readings, presentations, workshops, a book fair, the annual general meeting and a collective
renga. The weekend format allows for lots of exchanges and discussion. This is a great opportunity to get to know other
poets and enthusiasts in a relaxed setting.
2017 Haiku Canada Conference in Mississauga
The next annual Haiku Canada Weekend will be held on May 19-21, 2017 at
UTM (University of Toronto, Mississauga campus)
in Mississauga, Ontario, hosted by Anna Yin
(Mississauga’s Inaugural Poet Laureate) and nick avis.
This year, the agenda will be a bit more “relaxed”. There will be no call for submissions, since book launches and readings
will take centre stage. The idea is to have a “matsuri” (festival) of haiku.
Book launch of the conference anthology (editors: Claudia Radmore and Marco Fraticelli) This launch will involve memories,
and stories from our collective past. Plus many more individual book launches. More this year than ever!!!
Book launch of Erotic Anthology, Black Moss Press (editors: George Swede and Terry Ann Carter)
Anonymous workshops (hosted by nick avis and Terry Ann Carter) plus a surprise from nick
Homage to Eric Amann (a panel hosted by George Swede)
Readings, silent auction, books for sale and more surprises. Please join us for a great birthday party!
Details re: registration, accommodation,(banquet at the UTM Faculty Club), available in the new year. Hope to see you there.
