I am delighted to be able to announce the winners of the 2022 John Bird Dreaming Award for Haiku. The response to the competition was fantastic once again, and I would like to extend a huge thanks to all poets for contributing their poems.
The Fringe Myrtles haiku group were delighted to be invited to feature at the Chamber Poets spoken word event in Woodend on Saturday April 15th. Seven members of the group attended, and three absent members had some of their haiku read out for them.
The latest Fringe Myrtles meeting was held at Alice Wanderer’s wonderfully cosy bayside apartment on the outskirts of Melbourne. Alice prepared a lovely lunch which made the day a special social occasion for the group, as well as another opportunity to talk about haiku.
