Every September the Board of Directors and Associates of The Haiku Foundation are sent a survey. Their responses help to guide our growth and direction. We’d like to broaden our input, and so we’ll be asking you to respond to a series of questions, one per week, over the next half-year. Your replies will be weighed in our assessment of our performance, and will not be shared with anyone other than the Foundation’s Board of Directors.
Today’s question: Book of the Week
The Haiku Foundation’s Book of the Week has proven to be one our most durable and beloved features. The chapbook is the life’s blood of haiku, and for decades the major means of sharing poems. Book of the Week provides a wide range of styles and achievement levels to have a second viewing. Books for the most part have been published not fewer than 5 year prior to airing, and its exposure here helps acquaint our audience with some of the holdings in our Digital Library.
