“This is no arena for cheap attempts at word-game haiku - this is a very serious literary journal that documents our current history in the short form poetry of writers across the globe. The poems that have already surfaced on the site, along with their related links, are well-written, incredibly moving pieces. As well as offering the challenge of writing to a theme – something many journals have already successfully explored – Haiku News also offers us the chance to see the current political climate in a new, often very personal light, as well as other news items that might inspire us to open our notebooks.”

“I have recently discovered a new and exciting online project called ‘Haiku News’. It is presented in the format of a newspaper and seeks to capture world-wide news items in the haiku (and related) form(s), with links to relevant articles.”

—Paul Smith, Paper Moon

“This is not news about haiku, but news in haiku — and good haiku, not the folk kind. Their motto is “the personal is the political is the poetical.” I’d like to see more poetry zines responding to the news in this way.”

—Dave Bonta, Via Negative
