Carolyn Hall (born Carolyn Sue Fineberg, February 13, 1941, Saint Paul, Minnesota, U.S.A.), American writer, editor, and haiku poet. Having studied zoology and speech pathology, she worked in a variety of jobs before settling in as a graphic designer and copy editor. She is a former editor of Acorn (2008-2012), served on the editorial staff of the Red Moon anthologies, and is current editor of Mariposa. She has been an active member and officer of the Haiku Poets of Northern California since 1999. She has published five award-winning collections of haiku and senryu—most recently Cricket Dusk (2020)—and edited three anthologies in the HPNC’s Two Autumns readings series. Hall divides her time between Santa Rosa, California, and San Francisco where she has lived since 1964.
