This region includes Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Puerto Rico, South Carolina, and the United States Virgin Islands.
The Southeast region welcomes all poets as we build haiku-related activities throughout our territory. Several fine haiku poets can be found in our sunny locales.
Regional activities in recent years have included meetings in Atlanta and Orlando, as well as events at several venues in Alabama. In Tuscaloosa, Alabama, the annual Sakura Festival has been promoting haiku through an annual contest since 1991.
Jump in and get involved! For more information, please visit our Haiku Society of America SE Region page on Facebook, or contact the Southeast regional coordinator.
