The In-Between Season haiku pamphlet will be launched at An Evening of Haiku with Tom Lowenstein and Alan Summers at the Royal Crescent Hotel


The In-Between Season
With Words Pamphlet Series

This pamphlet is dedicated to my wife, haiku poet and so much more,. Thank you for all the love and support over the years.

The pamphlet is also dedicated to:

Bill Higginson (1938-2008) 
Always greatly missed, and an inspiration, Bill (William J. Higginson) was considered to be the foremost American authority on haiku, as well as famous as the co-author of The Haiku Handbook: How to Write, Share, and Teach Haiku, and author of Haiku World: An International Poetry Almanac and The Haiku Seasons: Poetry of the Natural World.

The Haiku Handbook is one of the most widely-read English-language haiku books.

Janice Bostok (1942-2011)
The First Lady of Australian Haiku, and a hugely supportive friend and colleague in my early career.  She is still greatly missed by me.

Hidenori Hiruta
Founder, and Akita International Haiku Network Secretary General (Japan) who regularly translates my work into Japanese with a panache I will always treasure.
