A.C. Missias reading her haiku
As a haiku poet, an essayist, the publisher of Redfox Press and the editor of Acorn, a highly-respected haiku journal . . .
. . . A.C. Missias has had a significant impact on North American haiku. She won the first Shiki Internet Haiku Salon contest in 1995 and was included in A New Resonance, an anthology of emgerging voices in English language haiku, from Red Moon Press (Jim Kacian and Dee Evetts, editors). To get an idea of her skill as an editor and publisher, read the entry for Acorn in Charles Trumbull's survey of haiku publications.
