Third Annual Haiku Foundation Volunteer Appreciation Day
September 16, 2023 marks our third celebration of THF Volunteer Appreciation Day. The Haiku Foundation’s Board of Directors extends a heartfelt Thank You! to all who have offered their time, energy, and expertise: committee chairs and members; hosts, editors, guest editors and contributors of current and past features, Haikupedia, and Juxtapositions; those who work in the background to maintain THF’s website and forum; coordinators and judges of the annual Touchstone Awards; and those of us who oversee the work of the Foundation as officers and board members. You can find a complete record of all our volunteers on our Service list. (If you note any omissions, please let us know.)
Again this year, to recognize the significant contributions of all THF volunteers, co-editors Jim Kacian and Julie Bloss Kelsey have compiled an anthology that features the work of nearly 100: the high lonesome: The Haiku Foundation Volunteer Anthology 2023. All past and present volunteers were eligible to participate. In addition to the online version, you can purchase a print version here.
