The Haiku Foundation is gearing up to unveil its gallery of haiku poets in early January, and we hope your page will be included on opening day.
This Haiku Registry is certain to become an important research tool for anyone interested in English-language haiku, but one of its main functions is to assist poets in the worldwide haiku community to get to know each other better. Being able to “put a face to a name” is a very rewarding experience, since the majority of us are unlikely to meet in person.
The registry will also allow poets who are new to haiku to learn more about the nature and quality of haiku being published in English. And it’s an opportunity to share your work with thousands of readers.
Many poets from around the world have already submitted their information, and we’d like you to be seen from the start – so please send us the information we need, a photo, and 10 of your published English-language haiku soon!
