Anna Mazurkiewicz (born Anna Barbara Mazurkiewicz, January 5, 1978, Chełm, Lubelskie, Poland), holds a master’s degree in economics and works as an accountant. By passion, however, she is a writer of prose, poetry, and more recently journalistic feuilletons and editorials as well as blogs. Since 2012 her haikai have been featured in international English-language publications, principally online, and recognized in global competitions including the 2013 Kusamakura Haiku Competition, the 1st European Haiku Prize competition in 2015, and the 2016 Bulgarian Cherry Blossom Haiku Contest. Her work was chosen for anthologies including Lee Gurga and Scott Metz’s Haiku 2015; Robert Epstein’s The Sacred in Contemporary Haiku (2014); and Roberta Beary, Ellen Compton, and Kala Ramesh’s Wishbone Moon (2018). She was named in Krzysztof Kokot’s “The European Top 100 most creative haiku authors” for 2014, 2015, and 2016. She resides in Chełm, Poland.
