I'm excited to hear the full official announcements and events around this, but in the meantime I received this message this morning:


Dear Alan,

Thank you again for your submissions. The project  has ended up attracting an extremely strong response, 352 poems from 42 poets, which will enable us to meet our aim of featuring a range of subjects, voices and regions. Striking a balance between these different elements has been difficult but we have now made our decisions about which 20 haiku we want to feature and would like to include your haiku from Castle Beach, Falmouth:


beachcombing...
a periwinkle rotates
deeper into itself

At the British Haiku Society AGM last December it was declared that the society would be happy to donate a sum necessary for this project to go forward. I was pleased that the vote was a majority one.

Watch this space. :-)

Congratulations on being chosen Alan, in a hard won battle.

Thank you!

Nearly four years later there is funding to bring it forward. It was a lovely surprise to attend the British Haiku Society Annual General Meeting, and see that funding was on the list.

I've often done collaborations, one with CorianĀ® but not with glass until now.

warm regards,
Alan
