Abigail Friedman began composing haiku in Japanese, when as an American diplomat living in Japan, a chance encounter led her to join a local haiku group. Since then, her haiku, haibun, and writings on haiku have been featured in poetry publications around the world. She is the author of three haiku-related books, including The Haiku Apprentice: Memoirs of Writing Poetry in Japan (Stone Bridge Press, 2006), as well as the founder of the SuperNoVa haiku group.
Abigail has received multiple haiku awards and in 2012, she was commissioned to compose a haiku to mark the U.S. gift of dogwoods to Japan, on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of Japan’s gift of cherry trees to the U.S. She is the current President of the Japan-America Society of Washington, D.C.
