I am very pleased to announce that scent of rain: the 2011 Southern California Haiku Study Group Anthology is complete on its way to the printer. From our first beautiful hand-made 2001 edition with eight founding haijin, we have grown to a volume featuring 62 poets. Our new book will be perfect-bound with a full-color heavy-stock cover, featuring poems in both English and Spanish (with English translations). This collection emphasizes our unique climate and geography, our rich cultural diversity, and the broad range of experience of our contributing haijin. I think you will be very pleased with the superb quality of work in this edition.
