Update: The Haiku Foundation Education Resources

The Haiku Foundation Education Resources include a wide variety of content, by many authors.

Jim Kacian recently added to “Stories From The Field.”  There are 19 Teaching Stories listed, from the series edited and hosted by Brad Bennett and Jeannie Martin.  Each story listed to date links back to the original post at The Haiku Foundation.

Cover Art

With permissions, I edited the first Gallery of Cover Art at The Haiku Foundation.  Thank you to Dave Russo for his work to publish this gallery (2016).  The covers in the gallery are from chapbooks, books, and journals.

One of the covers is Family Farm: Haiku for a Place of Moons, by Carol Purington.  Illustrations by Shirley L. Horn.   You can learn more at Carol’s poetry page at Woodslawn Farm.

Quiet Christmas Poetry, by contrast, is a large print book.  I still remember sharing with an older relative in 2014, and my aunt said, “Oh, I can read this.”  Karl and I created this book from my Christmas site.  I am grateful for different books, which seem to work well at different times.
