Welcome to Haiku Canada

Lisa Mulrooney

Her work has been published in The Maynard and one of her poems was recently shortlisted for The Malahat Review's Open Season Award in Poetry.
When Lisa accepted the role of Poet Laureate in February, she started writing and publicly posting a haiku every day (intent on learning more about haiku and all of its intricacies). She has committed to continuing to share a haiku every day until her term concludes in 2021.
