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.
This week, we feature quite a few biographies of poets from three countries: Longer entries for American poets Charles B. Dickson, especially esteemed for his nature haiku of the American South; Nick Virgilio, considered a founder of haiku written in the American idiom; and American translator and writer Harry Behn. You’ll also find short bios of American haikuists Geoffrey Sill and Paul Miller. In addition, this week we highlight short entries about poets Kerstin Park and Teresa Wennberg, both of Sweden, as well as short bios for the following Croatian haiku poets: Mihovila Čeperić-Biljan, Tomislav Marijan Bilosnić, Franjo Ordanić, Dejan Pavlinović, Jasminka Predojević, Vladimir Šuk, Silva Trstenjak, and Aljoša Vuković.
