Pictures and thoughts from participants in the 2004 conference.


The May conference was quite magical. Terry Ann Carter did a fantastic job of coordinating an event filled with all kinds of readings, presentations and workshops. I was fascinated by the workshops that took poets away from words and into other realms. DeVar Dahl gave us the opportunity to experience origami, and to explore the process of crafting both haiku

and the paper in our hands. Jeanne Emrich invited us to play with brush and image to stretch our haiku into the realm of haiga. And through her performance, Maggie Chula opened a window for us on the lives of three women who were also exceptional haiku poets. As always, hearing poets read their own work was a joy ever after, I hear their voices when I read their words in print. And I'll also remember the haiku sheets flapping in the breeze of the wooded glen!
