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.
In the spotlight this week is haiku in Croatia, a country that boasts one of the largest and most active haiku communities of any nation in the world. Over the past thirty-five years, Croatian poets have figured largely on the international haiku stage, in publications, contests, conferences, and other important haiku institutions. We feature several: Marijan Čekolj, Željko Funda, Marinko Kovačević, Nina Kovačić, Duško Matas, Tomislav Maretić, Boris Nazansky, Ðurđa Vukelić Rožić, Stjepan Rožić, Drago Štambuk, and Božena Zernec.
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!
