The Haiku Foundation welcomes you to Haikupedia! May brings a mix of new articles.
Haikupedia staff have been busy compiling glossary items, including Japanese short-form terms: hokku, waka, and haiga. Many more glossary items will be added in the coming months. This month, read through details — in French and English — of Haiku Canada’s annual French-Canadian competition, Prix Jocelyne-Villeneuve. We also bring you the bio of Canadian haiku poet and HSA Bulletin editor, Ignatius Fay. As well, peruse the bios of several American short-form poets: Sondra J. Byrnes, Theresa A. Cancro, Marcyn Del Clements, Gary Hotham, Tom Painting, and Marilyn Appl Walker.
We welcome your feedback and involvement. If you have suggestions, comments, or note any errors, please contact the editors using the Haikupedia Contact Box. We look forward to reading your reactions to and ideas for this important project!
