Welcome to the
Nick Virgilio Haiku Association

To inspire lifelong learning of poetry and strengthen our communities in the literary arts.



Congratulations to the Winners of this year's 2017 Nicholas A. Virgilio Memorial Haiku and Senryu Competition!  

The Nick Virgilio Writers House is nearly ready to open, and we are committed to raising money for programming at the house.  

Will you donate $25, $50, $100?  It would make a real difference!


Nick Virgilio - the poet

The Nick Virgilio Haiku Association was founded in 1989 to promote the writing of haiku poetry, to provide encourage-ment and support to young people to write poetry, and to further the work and poetry of Camden haiku poet Nick Virgilio.
