NaHaiWriMoNational Haiku Writing Month Starts February 1

Have you written a haiku yet today? How about every day throughout the month of February? Why February? Because February is National Haiku Writing Month, also known as NaHaiWriMo — the shortest month for the shortest genre of poetry. The goal is to write at least one haiku each day for the entire month. It’s harder than it seems — are you up for it?

For more information, visit www.nahaiwrimo.com, where you can learn about the myths and realities of haiku (and why it never needed to be 5-7-5 in English). You can also get involved, along with 1,600+ other people, at the NaHaiWriMo page on Facebook, where NaHaiWriMo founder, Michael Dylan Welch, provides daily writing prompts to inspire you.

To learn more about haiku, check out “Becoming a Haiku Poet” and “Getting Started with Haiku.” There’s also a NaHaiWriMo Facebook page in French and in Bulgarian! Whether you write in English or another language, join in and write a haiku a day for February — National Haiku Writing Month!

If you’re not on Facebook, you can follow @NaHaiWriMo on Twitter and tweet your daily haiku to #nahaiwrimo.
