Survey Says . . . THF Planned Projects

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: What’s Next for The Haiku Foundation?

In addition to the many projects currently underway with the Foundation, we have many others in the planning stages, including

Grantwriter Hire

    : our single greatest need is to expand our resource pool, and the hiring of a professional to guide us is essential to meeting it

Introductory Video

We welcome your input as to what seems most important to you, as well as which you would be willing to lend your energies and resources toward.

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:






Please feel free to add additional comments. This is the last installment in our survey for 2015. Thank you for your thoughtful responses, which will help us make the Foundation a better resource for all of us.

  1. I began blogging with WordPress in December 2009. Blogs vary and my sites are small and informal. So my perspective is not the same as the formal goals at THF – a non-profit foundation. At the same time, it is a new challenge when there is a lot of content on a site. I review my archives each month, to see what I wrote in a given month, over several years. Sometimes I see a few poems that I feel are worthy to share again, and I repost them in a new way. I don’t expect that new readers would have time to read in my archives. I may have forgotten a post, or lost track of a goal that I would like to work towards again.


    A weekly feature on THF blog that reposts content from past blog posts/discussions would be helpful, in my view. Rereading offers its own rewards in general. I began here in 2012, and know there are many posts from before then, that would be good to read, as time allows.


    It also seems worthwhile to publish content in more than one format. I think of Montage: The Book, and also the Montage online galleries. And I saw the feedback/suggestions for JUXTA in print form – I would buy a copy from an on-demand print service.


    This month, as many parents, teachers, students, and others prepare for the new school year, is a good time to share the many free education resources at THF. Not only the Education page with haiku lessons, but also THF Digital Library, Registry – really the entire site – as makes sense in a given context. Something as simple as mentioning a lesson plan, or a book or article, to another teacher can make a big difference. Per Diem haiku could be a part of a daily routine in a class.


    Thanks – I learn here daily and appreciate all the work by so many people.
