Haiku in Canada:
From the haikukai circles of British Columbia's internment camps to the seminal Canadian anthologies edited by George Swede, Dorothy Howard and André Duhaime, and Marshall Hryciuk, to the avant-garde elements of Gregory Betts’s Haikube, and Gary Barwin and derek beaulieu's frogments in the frag pool, Terry Ann Carter has given haiku a wide sweep in the pages of Haiku in Canada. Featuring over 175 poets, including translated poems from French Canada, her labour over a decade has resulted in a tour de force of history and poetry.
Poet and paper artist Terry Ann Carter is the author of six collections
of long form poetry, two haiku guidebooks, and five haiku chapbooks; she
has edited four haiku anthologies. As past president of Haiku Canada,
founder of and facilitator for KaDo Ottawa (2001-2012) and Haiku Arbutus
Victoria Study Group (2014-present), she has given hundreds of haiku and
book arts workshops around the world. Tokaido (Red Moon Press, 2017) won
a Touchstone Distinguished Book Award, and in 2019, she was a judge for
the first International Haiku Contest for the city of Morioka, Japan.
