First Time Here?

Are you new to Graceguts? There’s a lot to see here! The organization of categories on the left side should make it easy to find your way around. All work is by Michael Dylan Welch, except as noted, and focuses mostly on haiku and related poetry. You could start by exploring these highlights:
  • Appearances                   My upcoming readings, workshops, and other events
  • Bio                                    Juicy details about yours truly
  • Blogistics                         Announcements of new site additions
  • Books                               Books I’ve published, nearly all poetry
  • Digressions                     For fun, by category, surprises abounding
  • Essays                              Categorized commentary, mostly on haiku poetry
  • Haiku and Senryu          Selections of my best work
  • Poems                              Some of my longer poems
  • Press Here                      Books published with my press
  • Tanka                               My explorations of tanka poetry
  • Trifolds                            Poem sheets for you to view or download
I’m also particularly pleased with the Rengay page for being the Internet’s largest repository of rengay poems and essays about the rengay form, and with the Poems About Haiku page for being an extensive assemblage of longer poems about haiku. And Nothing is fun too. And if you wonder how this site got its name, check out Why Graceguts. Thank you for Your Thoughts. Please Contact Me if you have additional thoughts to share.
