Jim Kacian, founder and president of The Haiku Foundation, was recently interviewed by Reva Goldberg of The Cold Lands blog on the occasion of celebrating International Haiku Poetry Day 2015. (The Cold Lands is a film produced and directed by Tom Gilroy, one of a collaborative of poets who published The Haiku Year (Softskull Publishing, 1998). The film was shot in upstate New York, and the setting inspired a lavish book of haiku (which includes a cd of the film).) In the interview Kacian addresses, among other things, why he created the Foundation, and his aspirations for it in the future. Visit the blog to view the entire interview.
