Carolyn Hall lives in San Francisco and is an active member of the Haiku Poets of Northern California. She discovered haiku in 1999, and was immediately smitten with the form and the way in which it opened her eyes to the world around her. Her haiku have been widely published and anthologized in the U.S. and abroad, and she has received numerous awards, including both “Poem of the Year” and “Poet of the Year” in The Heron’s Nest Readers Choice awards. She was formerly an editor of Mariposa (the membership journal of HPNC) and was a member of the Red Moon Anthology editorial staff. She is currently editor of Acorn: a journal of contemporary haiku. Water Lines, her award-winning individual collection of haiku and senryu, was published in 2006 by Snapshot Press.
