Woodnotes — #10
This issue was vincent tripi’s last as coeditor. He put an indelible stamp on Woodnotes in its first three years, and it was a pleasure to work with him. This issue included “Haiku North America Conference Report,” published anonymously, but I actually wrote it, celebrating the first HNA conference that took place in August 1991 in Livermore, California, a landmark event in Western haiku history. A new occasional column starting in this issue was “The Haiku Life,” with anecdotes about haiku in the real world. Along with the usual haiku and senryu selections, again reaching a new high number, an extensive set of mini book reviews by both editors rounded out this issue. This was the last issue to include the original “Woodnotes” title logo by Mary Fields on the cover, and the last to include poems by the editors on the back cover.
