Wishbone Moon is a groundbreaking anthology of haiku by women in the international haiku community. As editors we consulted women journal editors and haiku leaders around the globe. We asked them for help in identifying women whose work they regarded highly. The response was enthusiastic. Our thanks to Susan Antolin, Annie Bachini, Marlène Buitelaar, Ferris Gilli, Maeve O’Sullivan, Patricia Prime, Lidia Rozmus, Lynne Rees, Christina Sng, Iliyana Stoyanova, and Irena Szewczyk. Their lists of nominations were the foundation for the anthology. We asked the nominees to give us their very best work. We did not suggest a theme or topic. We wanted to showcase work representing the haiku aesthetic at its best. We believe that is what they gave us, and we thank them. As we made our selections, reading the large body of fine submissions was truly a pleasure.”
