Haiku in new anthology

A haiku of mine will appear in the new book by David Lanoue’s new anthology “Write like Issa” due to be released  at the Haiku North America conference in Santa Fe in September.


Kobayashi Issa (1763-1828) was a brilliant master of Japanese haiku. This instructional book offers six lessons on how to write haiku based on examples from Issa and from twenty-first century poets who are following his creative path.

David G. Lanoue is a professor of English at Xavier University of Louisiana and a former president of the Haiku Society of America. His books include haiku translations, haiku criticism, and haiku novels. He maintains the Haiku of Kobayashi Issa website, for which he translated 10,000 of Issa’s one-breath poems.
