New Orleans Haiku Society (2002–2016)
The New Orleans Haiku Society was founded in early 2002 by Johnette Downing and David G. Lanoue; it disbanded in 2016. Monthly meetings at the Milton Latter Public Library were open to the public. Attendees shared their haiku and other poetry, especially renga, and members published a collection of haiku, Katrina-ku: Storm Poems (2006) and two mini-chapbooks. At its peak the society had 11 regular attendees.
