All posts by Stella Pierides

Stella Pierides is a British poet, writer and felting enthusiast of Greek descent. She divides her time between Neusaess, Germany, and London, England. Interweaving the past with the present, Stella’s work is located at the meeting points of cultural, social, and psychological worlds, which spark the day-to-day moments of our lives. Her work has been published in numerous print and online journals and anthologies. Recent books include Feeding the Doves: 48 short stories and haibun (Fruit Dove Press, 2013); In the Garden of Absence, micro-poetry and haiku (Fruit Dove Press, 2012), and Of This World haibun (Red Moon Press, 2017), which received Haiku Society of America Merit Awards for books published in 2012 and 2017, respectively; and Ekphrasis: Between Image and Word (Fruit Dove Press, 2017 – paintings and haiku, a collaboration with Maria Pierides --www.mariapierides.co.uk). Stella serves on The Haiku Foundation board of directors and is the managing editor of Haikupedia. She enjoys reading, felting, gardening, film, music, and food. She also likes walking around the Bavarian lakes, along the rivers, through the moors and flatlands of Swabia, the North Norfolk coast, the Welsh countryside, and strolling along the Thames.

New Resonance Community video

Check out this video: “How I found my voice: A new Resonance Community Reading” from the Haiku North America Conference 2019. From Jim Kacian and Julie Warthers’s presentation on this Community of poets, including members reading out their work. Julie read out haiku by members not able to attend.

My own poem was read out, too:
