A New Resonance 9: Emerging Voices in English-Language Haiku, edited by Jim Kacian and Dee Evetts
Shortlisted for the Touchstone Distinguished Books Award 2015 by The Haiku Foundation!
New Resonance poets now number more than 150. 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 ninth volume in a series that has won several Haiku Society of America’s Merit Book Award in its first eight appearances.
