Haiku Registry at The Haiku Foundation

Ellen Grace Olinger – 2016

The Haiku Registry is edited and managed by Billie Wilson, at The Haiku Foundation.

When I began my volunteer work in education at THF (2012), the registry was part of my general background reading.  I learned so much, from reading the Poet Profiles.  And I continue to read there often.  For example, I may be interested in learning more about a poet, after reading a poem on a blog, or learning of a book by a poet.

You can read my Poet Profile page here.

I took the photos of the daylilies last summer.

New Haiku Lesson at The Haiku Foundation

I was inspired by International Haiku Poetry Day and EarthRise to write a new haiku lesson plan, for the Education Resources feature at The Haiku Foundation:

Haiku Lesson for All Ages: EarthRise Collaboration Themes and Poems

Jim Kacian is the editor for the Education Resources at The Haiku Foundation.  As I state at the end of the new plan, the work of several teachers, poets, and scholars is published there.  I helped begin this work in 2013, and it has grown, and continues to grow.
