The Haiku Foundation welcomes you to Haikupedia! Each week for the next several months we will release a few new articles in our ever-expanding encyclopedia of haiku. These we hope will give you a sense of the potential scale of this enterprise, as well as entice you to become a part of the project.
One of the most professional and active haiku cultures to be found on the planet is that of Romania1, and this week we look at its history and practice, and that of several of its leading exponents: diplomat Radu Serban, internationalist poet Vasile Moldovan, haiga master Ion Codrescu, editor/publisher Clelia Ifrim, president of the Romanian Haiku Society Laura Vaceanu, and award-winning poet Eduard Tara. We also look at the important international contest Sharpening the Green Pencil.
We welcome your participation! If you would like to be a part of this important project, please contact the editors using our Contact Box below. We have a need for all levels of expertise, and will look forward to finding the right niche for you!
- Due to a technical glitch, the country article on Romania is not available, but should be at some point during this next week. ↩
