Welcome to a new year – and let’s hope it’s a better one!
I’ll keep Haiku NewZ ticking over in January but won’t be making major updates, for instance, the monthly article remains the same. Besides feeling like a break I’ve got plenty of ‘homework’ to be doing as we look forward to starting some renovations!
Sadly, we have farewelled three well-known haiku poets at the end of 2020. Read more at Haiku Happenings, where you’ll also find information about some online courses starting in January.
The Contest listing has been updated to the end of March and if you haven’t dived into the monthly article by Lynne Rees – looking at why haiku may be uncut and how to achieve that technique successfully – then January and all its connotations of a fresh start may be just the month to do it.
If you feel like you’re running out of reading material or would like to spend some time with articles previously published here, please go to the index of Archived Articles; or try out the index for Websites & Resources, which includes links to Youtube videos.
Please get in touch if you have any ideas or information you’d like to share.
