My new prize-winning e-chapbook of haibun, "One Bowl" was posted in the fall of 2012, by Snapshot Press, England: http://www.snapshotpress.co.uk/ebooks/One_Bowl.pdf My newest print book, "Recycling Starlight", is a cycle of grief poems processing the loss of my husband, William J. Higginson, in October of 2008. Also, "The Haiku Handbook", which I co-authored with him, recently came out in a 25th Anniversary Edition. And my hardcover, illustrated children’s alphabestiary, "The Beastie Book," came out in December, 2009. I am a Dodge Poet and was invited to read at the 2010 Geraldine R. Dodge Poetry Festival at the Performing Arts Center in Newark, NJ. For more information and sample poems from my books, you may visit my web site at: www.2hweb.net/penhart.
