The Mainichi welcomes new haiku selector

Dhugal J. Lindsay

From August, The Mainichi welcomes Australian scientist and accomplished haiku poet Dhugal J. Lindsay, 46, as the new selector for our Haiku in English section.

Dr. Lindsay has composed haiku in both English and Japanese, and his debut collection "Mutsugoro" (The Mudskipper) won the seventh Nakaniida Grand Haiku Prize in 2002 for the best debut work by a haiku poet in Japanese. His second collection, "Shukko," was published in 2008. Dr. Lindsay is a member of the Modern Haiku Society of Japan.
