Published for the first time are some comprehensive and succinct guidelines to writing English-language haiku presented by Quendryth Young.

The guidelines are backed up with examples from Quendryth’s own extensive and award-winning body of work.

Quendryth has agreed to have the guidelines made available for free through the Australian Haiku Society to spread the message, spread the joy, spread the elation … 'of living with senses wide open to the environment, in order to capture significant moments of observation with concision and resonance'.
