Our Roving Ambassador

The Haiku Foundation is pleased to announce the creation of a new position, Roving Ambassador, in collaboration with our Education Resources program, the initiative of our longstanding benefactor Roberta Beary. Ms. Beary will fulfill the role for 2017, as she embarks on round-the-world travel which will see her engage with a gallimaufry of haiku cultures on at least three continents. During this time she will help people around the world become more aware of the Foundation and its activities, in addition to giving readings and presentations. Her first stop is Hawai’i, to be followed by New Zealand by the end of the month. We’ll update you with her whereabouts as time goes along, and be sure to check here for her reports. Please notify her if you would like to try to schedule an appearance.

  5. Congratulations, Roberta. Getting into Saudi Arabia is a bit tricky, but if you’re headed anywhere else in the Middle East, please let me know.

    All the best,

  6. Whitehorse, Yukon Territory, Canada… let me know if you will be in the neighbourhood!
    congratulations, Kathy (kjmunro)

  7. Roberta – your mum would be very proud and what an exciting project. You will see a lot of seasons in 2017.

  8. Great stuff!
    As I’m now based only an hour and a quarter away from London (from Paddington train station) it will be fun to meet up, as always. Especially as I’m working really hard on some surprises for any visiting haiku poets.

    Congratulations Roberta!
    warmest regards
