Survey says . . . Bibliography

Every September the Board of Directors and Associates of The Haiku Foundation are sent a survey. Their responses help to guide our growth and direction. We’d like to broaden our input, and so we’ll be asking you to respond to a series of questions, one per week, over the next half-year. Your replies will be weighed in our assessment of our performance.

Today’s question: Bibliography

The Haiku Bibliography is a word document supplied and updated regularly by Charles Trumbull. It is downloadable from the site, and is the most complete list of haiku books extant. The next update is schedule sometime in 2013. You can find the Bibliography on the website.

Please assess how well The Haiku Foundation is delivering on this topic. Indicate your assessment of our performance to date by choosing one of the options:

Excellent

Good

Fair

Poor

Abandon

Please feel free to add additional comments. Thank you in advance for your consideration, and for helping us make The Haiku Foundation a better resource.

  1. I have always been concerned that small books (much like our small poems) can so easily be lost over time. The fact that so many of them are handmade or small press with limited distribution increases the likelihood that many will be forgotten. This is a great service that keeps them alive!

  2. Dear Charlie, I’m just beginning to learn about your Haiku Bibliography. It seems an entire generation of poets has grown and found their voices, since I met you at Chi-ku in the mid-1990s (though not able to continue then as you know).

    I understand the mission of THF to archive and honor the haiku of all the generations – wonderful and excellent. The survey is a great idea. I love the voices of my parents’ generation, ours, and the young poets are growing so fast – they begin blogs and simply make a commitment to practice.

    Thanks for all your service, Ellen
