Eve Luckring, haiku poet, teacher, photographer and video artist, has offered her time and skill to help create The Haiku Foundation Video Archive. This message is from her:
On April 17th, National Haiku Poetry Day will be celebrated with poetry readings in various cities across North America.
April 17th is also the day that THF will kick off The Haiku Foundation Video Archive via the crowd funding platform IndieGoGo.
The Haiku Foundation Video Archive is about honoring and recording some talented poets, translators, and scholars, who for many years have quietly influenced the literary landscape. These interviews and poetry readings will be available FREE at THF’s website to anyone who wishes to use the archive.
The Haiku Foundation Video Archive is about understanding how haiku written in English has developed over the second half of the 20th century.
The Haiku Foundation Video Archive is about inspiring what haiku might become
as we move deeper into the 21rst century.
Stay tuned for more info.
