An Interview with Roberta Beary on Haibun

I had the pleasure of again discussing haibun with Roberta Beary who edited the ‘haibun only’ issue of Failed Haiku. We discussed best practices in submissions and the things she looked for in this making her selections for this issue. Check it out on Youtube! CLICK HERE!

We discuss with her the ways poets can improve their odds of acceptance, and hone their craft. Roberta is the Haibun Editor for Modern Haiku and has judged contests, and of course, contributed her own work to many publications both print and online. She has also been the Ambassador of The Haiku Foundation and spoke and traveled to haiku groups in the USA and Europe. In this issue, she has collected single examples from some of the best poets in the Haibun world. Enjoy Issue 72.
