The Haiku Foundation welcomes you to Haikupedia! Each week for the next several months we will release a few new articles in our ever-expanding encyclopedia of haiku. These we hope will give you a sense of the potential scale of this enterprise, as well as entice you to become a part of the project.
This week’s long biography, written by Haikupedia Editor-in-Chief Charles Trumbull, features W. G. Aston, a pioneer in bringing classical Japanese literature, including haiku, to Western readers. Our featured country is Finland, and you will find short biographies of our Finnish correspondent Niklas Salmi, and three poets he mentions in his article, Kai Nieminen, Gérard Krebs, and Pekka Kytömäki.
We welcome your participation! If you would like to be a part of this important project, please contact the editors using our Contact Box below. We have a need for all levels of expertise, and will look forward to finding the right niche for you!
