A New Resonance 13: Emerging Voices in English-Language Haiku, edited by Jim Kacian and Julie Schwerin


The New Resonance series, begun in 1999, has featured the work of more than 200 poets in its award-filled tenure.


The New Resonance haiku community now consists of 221 members with the addition of the New Resonance 13 group. These poets continue to appear in the major haiku journals and elsewhere, and their books have been accorded the honor of serious and adulatory review and critique. Many are recognized among the leaders of literary haiku in their respective countries and around the world. These seventeen new members to this rather exclusive confederacy, then, have a very high standard against which to measure themselves, but equally high expectations of their ultimate position in the haiku community. This is the thirteenth volume in a much-awarded series.
