An Essay from the Archives

Post date: Jun 10, 2016 2:36:49 AM

I’ve just resurrected a long and detailed old essay, written in 2002, and have added it to the Essays page. It’s “Problems and Challenges of International Haiku,” and was prepared for a panel discussion of the same name that I put together for the first Haiku Pacific Rim conference at California State University Long Beach in Long Beach, California. It seems that many of the challenges (at least as I saw them then) have not changed a great deal in the fifteen years since I wrote this paper. I hope it might provide some interesting points to consider that are still applicable today.
