Haiku Society of America Region

Mountains Region

This region includes Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, and Wyoming.

The Mountains Region of the HSA consists of nine states, so its members are scattered—the largest concentration tending to be in Colorado. The size of the region and its small membership numbers have made it difficult for haiku poets to sustain groups that can meet on a regular basis. While forming groups has been and will continue to be a challenge, a number of Mountains members have distinguished themselves as individuals within the HSA and the greater haiku community as editors as well as poets, with haiku published in the leading haiku journals. Through the Internet, Mountains members stay up to date with the HSA and the haiku community, and have made meaningful contacts with other haiku poets inside and outside the Mountains region. If you would like to know more about us, or learn about the opportunities available to you in the region, please contact the Plains and Mountains regional coordinator.

Jackie Maugh Robinson


Jackie lives in Las Vegas, Nevada. She joined HSA in 2014. Her haiku, senryu, tanka and haibun have been published in many online and print journals. “Of all my creative endeavors (from theatre actor/scene writer/asst. director/stage mgr. to music production, jewelry design), writing short-form poetry is my passion and by far, the most gratifying.”
