HNA ’17: freebies

With the Haiku North America 2017 conference fast approaching, Jessica Tremblay — author of Old Pond Comics and official cartoonist-in-residence at HNA ’15 — has been blogging about freebies:

A freebie is a promotional item you give to attendees at a conference. A freebie can take different forms: bookmarks, leaflets, postcards, 3D objects.

Whether you want to promote a book, a blog, a website, etc. or simply share some of your poems with like-minded enthusiasts, a freebie is a great way to do it.  :- )

A few years ago, I designed and printed up a postcard and a pair of “business cards” online at Vistaprint.com to raise awareness of my haiku Twitter stream, Twitter.com/Bill312:

Haiku Freebies

Haiku freebies: a postcard and two “business cards”.

I’ve never been to a haiku conference, so I’ve given the postcard to people generally as a thank you for their interest in my work, while I’ve used the biz cards to direct people to my Twitter stream — either in person or as a leave-behind.

My “Tanka in a Bottle” project could easily be adapted for use as a freebie, too.  :- )

One day I may attend Haiku North America…and if I do, I’ll be sure to bring along some freebies!  ;- )


For more on haiku freebies, please take a look at these posts by Jessica Tremblay:

Freebie: an introduction“; “Bookmarks: design tips and examples for haiku poets“; “Choose your conference freebie carefully“; “Promote your poetry with a beautiful postcard“; and “Why trifolds are one of the best freebies to give away at haiku conferences“.

Of course, you can never turn off the neon buddha. He can talk about haiku all night.

–haiku by Michael Dylan Welch (published in Daily Haiku)

The neon buddha poems created by Michael Dylan Welch are some of my favorite poems on the web. This one comes from DailyHaiku, but you can read 40 more poems on Michael’s site Graceguts.
