HAIKU: LIVING IN THE MOMENT
Margaret Chula lived in Japan for twelve years where she taught creative writing at Kyoto universities. She has published six collections of poetry; most recently, What Remains: Japanese Americans in Internment Camps, done in collaboration with quilt artist Cathy Erickson. Specializing in Japanese poetry, she teaches workshops at universities, Zen centers, and at international poetry conferences. One of her haiku featured on Itoen tea cans distributed throughout Japan. Last year, she was the Poet Laureate for Friends of Chamber Music in Portland, Oregon. She also serves as President of the Tanka Society of America.
