Janice Doppler is a retired school teacher and administrator. On a whim, she attended an introductory haiku workshop at the local senior center and was immediately captivated. Her haiku has been published in journals such as Acorn, Akitsu Quarterly, bottle rockets, First Frost, and Frogpond and haibun in The Haibun Journal, Contemporary Haibun Online, Cattails, and Drifting Sands. If Janice isn’t doing tai chi, watching or carving a bird, nature journaling, or writing poetry, she is studying Chinese philosophy or eating chocolate. She lives at the edge of a forest in Massachusetts.
