I have a row of 8 old pines in my back yard -- a sapling doesn't have a chance - I've watched them come and go
good one

Hey, Dustin! I'd definitely be interested in joining your group of young haiku poets. I'm only 21 myself, so I think it would certainly be interesting. Plus, I really need to get back to writing. I've been kind of blocked since my dad's death.

Thanks for dropping by my blog and I hope to hear from you! My email is mlgrippen@gmail.com.

Hi Dustin

I think your idea for a younger person's haiku group is a really good one - one of the challenges the wider haiku community faces is how to enagage with younger folks. While there are plenty of good examples of work in schools - Paul Conneally aka Little Onion does this type of work, there don't seem to me to be many haiku poets in their late teens and early twenties. My suggestion would be to keep the group to under thirties and try to learn both from each other and all the other resources out there.

Good luck!
