Survey Says . . . THF Publications

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: THF Publications

This category is divided into two compartments: book publishing, and journals. In the first, Montage: The Book is in its second printing, and serves as a premium for donors who give $50 or more. The Montage archive, from which the book was developed, is available on the website. In preparation are half a dozen biographies/critical assessments of major poets, to be inaugurated possibly in 2015. In the second, publication of a critical journal (Juxtapositions) has begun under the leadership of Peter McDonald, and is attracting attention from the scholarly world as well as from haiku poets and students. It is produced biannually and is listed with the major scholarly indices.

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. Excellent! Although, I am new to the haiku genres, I’m grateful for all the time and work that went into the “MONTAGE” and I really like the “JUXTA”

    Thank You

  2. I love Montage: The Book. I came to the THF website after the weekly series had ended. So I would love to see THF do another round of Montage, perhaps a “Montage Deux.” I really enjoy the way Allan organized by topic. For instance, it was fun to read a handful of haiku from/about a particular region. Perhaps the next round could also include examples of certain techniques (e.g. verb-less haiku) as well as topics.

  3. Excellent. I am beginning with JUXTA, and sharing with others who may be interested.

    Montage: The Book is the textbook for the haiku lessons we wrote, to begin the Education Page a few years ago. I was grateful to be able to learn from the editing and commentary by Allan Burns, the Foreword by Peggy Willis Lyles, and the many poets and haiku. Beautiful artwork by Ron Moss and book design by Red Moon Press. Wonderful that it is also available on THF website.
