A New Resonance 10: Emerging Voices in English-Language Haiku, edited by Jim Kacian and Dee Evetts


Categories: ,


Winner of a Haiku Society of America Merit Book Award 2018 (HM) for Best Anthology!

New Resonance poets now number nearly 200. They have won scads of contests, their subsequent books have been accorded the honor of serious and adulatory review and critique, and many are recognized amongst 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 tenth volume in a much-awarded series.
