Haiku New Zealand Showcase

A new Showcase section has been added to the Haiku NewZ website. The Showcase will be added to on a regular basis, highlighting the work of two outstanding New Zealand haijin at a time.

Our inaugural writers are Barbara Strang (Christchurch) and Bernard Gadd (Auckland). The pages also include an article of the Katikati Haiku Pathway, and a glossary of New Zealand terms to aid overseas readers.

New Zealand does not have its own haiku society, however the New Zealand Poetry Society has offered a home for our web presence for which are extremely grateful.

Please do call by and enjoy haiku from this amazing corner of the world:
