Two journals have dominated American haiku, but the haiku scene has also been enriched by a succession of smaller, often ephemeral journals that have explored various dimensions of the vital American haiku movement. From its first publication, on the heels of the closing of has held pride of place. Kay Titus Mormino produced the first issue of in the winter of 196970. In its third year it changed from four to three issues a year. Mormino named Robert Spiess editor in 1978, and the journals base was moved from Los Angeles to Madison, Wis. Over the years, provided a forum for all views on the evolving aesthetics and craft of English-language haiku, featured the finest essays, consistently reviewed the haiku literature, introduced hundreds of new poets, and kept a finger on the pulse of haiku in Japan, Europe, and elsewhere. Because of ill health, Spiess turned the editorship of over to Lee Gurga following issue 33:1 (winter-spring 2002).
, the journal of the Haiku Society of America (and first called , a name chosen in a contest), made its appearance in February 1978. The first issue listed in addition to Lilli Tanzer as editor Yasko Karaki as consulting editor, and Stephen Wolfe as correspondent in Japan. The editors originally intended to publish all haiku submitted by HSA subscriber/members, but this policy was almost at once found to be infeasible, and the magazine welcomed haiku, senryu, linked verse, essays, and reviews by members and nonmembers alike. began as a quarterly and remained so, with a few deviations, through the end of 1995, after which time it went to three issues a year. The several editors  have brought various interests and skills to the journal, and over the years has been in the vanguard of presenting linked forms and haiku sequences, tanka, and haibun as well as high-quality essays and reviews. An awareness of the needs of the membership has always governed the journals editorial choices. s circulation is the largest of any English-language haiku journal.
In the desperate circumstances of the time, it was excusable tobe angry at what Wodehouse did, but to go on denouncing him threeor four years later–and more, to let an impression remainthat he acted with conscious treachery–is not excusable. Fewthings in this war have been more morally disgusting than thepresent hunt after traitors and Quislings. At best it is largelythe punishment of the guilty by the guilty. In France, all kinds ofpetty rats–police officials, penny-a-lining journalists,women who have slept with German soldiers–are hunted downwhile almost without exception the big rats escape. In England thefiercest tirades against Quislings are uttered by Conservatives whowere practising appeasement in 1938 and Communists who wereadvocating it in 1940. I have striven to show how the wretchedWodehouse–just because success and expatriation had allowedhim to remain mentally in the Edwardian age–became the CORPUSVILE in a propaganda experiment, and I suggest that it is now timeto regard the incident as closed. If Ezra Pound is caught and shotby the American authorities, it will have the effect ofestablishing his reputation as a poet for hundreds of years; andeven in the case of Wodehouse, if we drive him to retire to theUnited States and renounce his British citizenship, we shall end bybeing horribly ashamed of ourselves. Meanwhile, if we really wantto punish the people who weakened national morale at criticalmoments, there are other culprits who are nearer home and betterworth chasing.

It will not be doctrinaire, nor even logical. It will abolishthe House of Lords, but quite probably will not abolish theMonarchy. It will leave anachronisms and loose ends everywhere, thejudge in his ridiculous horsehair wig and the lion and the unicornon the soldier's cap-buttons. It will not set up any explicit classdictatorship. It will group itself round the old Labour Party andits mass following will be in the trade unions, but it will drawinto it most of the middle class and many of the younger sons ofthe bourgeoisie. Most of its directing brains will come from thenew indeterminate class of skilled workers, technical experts,airmen, scientists, architects and journalists, the people who feelat home in the radio and ferro-concrete age. But it will never losetouch with the tradition of compromise and the belief in a law thatis above the State. It will shoot traitors, but it will give them asolemn trial beforehand and occasionally it will acquit them. Itwill crush any open revolt promptly and cruelly, but it willinterfere very little with the spoken and written word. Politicalparties with different names will still exist, revolutionary sectswill still be publishing their newspapers and making as littleimpression as ever. It will disestablish the Church, but will notpersecute religion. It will retain a vague reverence for theChristian moral code, and from time to time will refer to Englandas "a Christian country". The Catholic Church will war against it,but the Nonconformist sects and the bulk of the Anglican Churchwill be able to come to terms with it. It will show a power ofassimilating the past which will shock foreign observers andsometimes make them doubt whether any revolution has happened.

After 1918 there began to appear something that had neverexisted in England before: people of indeterminate social class. In1910 every human being in these islands could be 'placed' in aninstant by his clothes, manners and accent. That is no longer thecase. Above all, it is not the case in the new townships that havedeveloped as a result of cheap motor cars and the southward shiftof industry. The place to look for the germs of the future Englandis in light-industry areas and along the arterial roads. In Slough,Dagenham, Barnet, Letchworth, Hayes–everywhere, indeed, onthe outskirts of great towns–the old pattern is graduallychanging into something new. In those vast new wildernesses ofglass and brick the sharp distinctions of the older kind of town,with its slums and mansions, or of the country, with itsmanor-houses and squalid cottages, no longer exist. There are widegradations of income, but it is the same kind of life that is beinglived at different levels, in labour-saving flats or councilhouses, along the concrete roads and in the naked democracy of theswimming-pools. It is a rather restless, cultureless life, centringround tinned food, PICTURE POST, the radio and the internalcombustion engine. It is a civilization in which children grow upwith an intimate knowledge of magnetoes and in complete ignoranceof the Bible. To that civilization belong the people who are mostat home in and most definitely OF the modern world, the techniciansand the higher-paid skilled workers, the airmen and theirmechanics, the radio experts, film producers, popular journalistsand industrial chemists. They are the indeterminate stratum atwhich the older class distinctions are beginning to break down.

The appearance in 1963 of was an important landmark. This journal and those that followed have been the backbone of the American haiku movement, providing a sense of community for nonprofessional poets scattered across the county, a forum for critiquing and discussion one anothers work, and a road map for the development of the genre. Besides publishing original haiku, promoted the discussion of both techniques and the directions that haiku in the West might take. Although some haiku had been published here and there in small magazines, was the first publication devoted solely to haiku (and the related senryu) written in the English language. Twice a year for six years this charming magazine went out to an increasing number of poets and others interested in English-language haiku, setting a high standard for the periodicals that would follow. printed seminal articles about haiku craft and esthetics and featured book reviews, some written with a startling frankness that has rarely been repeated in the years since. Issue number one was published in Platteville, Wis., under the joint editorship of James Bull and Don Eulert. Over the years various editors had a hand in producing , including Clement Hoyt, Robert Spiess, Walter H. Kerr, Gustave Keyser, Joyce W. Webb, and Gary Brower. Especially under Hoyts editorship became a bastion of traditional 575 haiku.
