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: re:Virals
re:Virals is The Haiku Foundation’s weekly poem commentary feature, based on a similar feature from the earliest days of The Haiku Foundation. Each week a poem is offered for commentary. These comments are gathered and posted the following week, and one of them is designated “commentary of the week.” The author of this winning commentary earns the right to select the next poem to be considered. And so on. The accumulated critical analysis amounts to an ongoing conversation on some of the finest haiku ever written in English. re:Virals is overseen by THF president and Board member Jim Kacian.
