The Touchstone Distinguished Books Award for 2019 is open for nominations. The awards, generally acknowledged as the highest in the field, are bestowed annually on individual collections, anthologies and/or works of scholarship that represent significant contributions to English-language haiku as judged by our distinguished panel of poets, editors and scholars.
Any English-language book or other book-length production of or about haiku and/or related forms published in 2019 is eligible for the award.
Current and past award-recipients are showcased in the Touchstone Archive.
