the haiku circle
Anne Burgevin: 2023 Workshop Leader
Anne Burgevin blends her professional work as a former elementary teacher and a creative writing teacher with her passion for haiku. Helping children and young adults explore their role as stewards of our natural resources is important to Anne's sense of purpose as an educator, as is assisting her students in their search for their voice and expressive nature. She has found haiku to be an exciting vehicle for these goals.
While growing up in the Finger Lakes of central New York and then raising her children in the Seven Mountains region of central Pennsylvania, she has come to know and love the northeastern deciduous forests, and the lakes and rivers that shape and define these regions. Her haiku are an expression of her passion and concern for every living being, for whom she has deep regard.
Anne's first collection of haiku was published five years ago. She is currently working on her second. Frozen Earth is available at Red Moon Press or from her website: anneburgevin.com. Anne recently became an associate editor at The Heron’s Nest, an esteemed haiku quarterly journal founded in 1999.
