At The Haiku Foundation, John Stevenson wrote about a New Year of Renku.

I received the new frogpond (Volume 39:3, Autumn 2016), Journal of the Haiku Society of America.  Christopher Patchel is Editor, and Joyce Clement is Coeditor.

Thank you to Julie Warther, Regional Coordinator, for mentioning Quiet Christmas Poetry in the 2016 Winter News for the Midwest Region.  Apart from information posts, the Christmas site remains a free online version of the large print book.


Happy New Year

This week I received NEST FEATHERS Selected Haiku from the First 15 Years of The Heron’s Nest.  Christopher Herold was the founding editor and John Stevenson is the current managing editor.  The book art is by Ron C. Moss.
