Highlights from Poetry Pea
I’ve learned a great deal from Patricia’s two-part conversation with Janice Doppler about the concept of zoka in haiku. I think it’s her best workshop yet! Be sure to check it out, so you’ll be ready to submit your haiku when the submission period opens.

Looking Ahead to Season 3
I’m already preparing for Season 3 of The Culinary Saijiki. I want to create a full 52 weeks of blog posts and podcasts episodes centered around the theme of “Feasts and Festivals.” My goal is to curate a global celebration of food and haiku in 2024, focusing on everything from bombastic national holidays to sacred religious traditions. To do that, I need your help! Start thinking about blog posts or podcast episodes you’d like to create, and be on the looking for full details soon.
