November 2007 Issue VII:4

"The greatest lesson I ever learned from him (H.G. Henderson) was to keep my eye on the haiku and not the author. He was likely to dispute the merits of poor haiku written by an established poet as he was to praise what he considered a good haiku by a beginner. His distaste for the cult of author led to his dubbing a small group of fellow back-scratchers, "The Mutual Admiration Society," even while he gave their haiku the same objective treatment he gave all others."

-L.A. Davidson

Welcome to the Roadrunner Haiku Journal. Roadrunner is an international quarterly online journal that publishes quality English-language haiku and senryu, as well as gendai haiku translations. We chose the name of the journal because we want it to be at the forefront of haiku thought and practice. For more details, go to the 'about Roadrunner' web page.
