Haiku Northwest Coordinators

The following is a list of Haiku Northwest coordinators, as listed in our 25th anniversary anthology, No Longer Strangers (2014 and later coordinators were not listed in the book). From 1993 to 2006, the Northwest Region of the Haiku Society of America included both Oregon and Washington. In 2007, Washington and Oregon became separate Haiku Society of America regions, with the Washington Region retaining the name Haiku Northwest. From 2017 to 2020, the Northwest Region of the Haiku Society of America also included Alaska. For 2014, Haiku Northwest voted to separate Haiku Northwest leadership duties from the duties of coordinating the Haiku Society of America region, so for 2014 and later, names listed are coordinators of the HSA region, not Haiku Northwest. See also the Haiku Northwest Officer History list.
