Stanford M. Forrester is a past president of the Haiku Society of America as well as the editor of bottle rockets: a collection of short verse. Stanford has had poems published internationally in journals and in over 40 anthologies, including in Haiku (part of Everyman's Pocket Poetry Series) and in American Zen: A Gathering of Poets. He has won many prestigious awards, including first seat in the 57th Annual Basho Anthology Contest in Japan and second place in the International Robert Frost Poetry & Haiku contest. He was the 2001 recipient of the Museum of Haiku Literature Award. He has read his haiku and taught workshops in several countries. Recently he's had 4 haiku published in a Norton Anthology: Haiku in English The first 100 years, and his haiku beat out 20,850 other poems to win the honor of being printed on a bottle if ito-en tea.

Each month, The Poetry Institute Poetry Series celebrates an eclectic mix of poetic voices. Free. Refreshments. (And participants are invited to bring something to share.) Open mic. Outstanding featured readers. In a casual setting. Open to all members of the public (and even others).
