  3. EUROPEAN TOP 100 MOST CREATIVE HAIKU AUTHORS

EUROPEAN TOP 100 MOST CREATIVE HAIKU AUTHORS

Begun in 2011, the European Top 100 is a listing of the most active and creative European haiku poets chosen by Polish poet Krzysztof Kokot and posted on the Web.


Every year since 2011, Krzysztof Kokot, Polish haiku poet and co-leader of the online European Kukai, has made an informal selection of the most active and creative European haiku poets, compiled a list of the top 100, and posted his choices on the Haiku Euro Top blog. The selection is made primarily from work appearing in English in major haiku journals and in international haiku contests during a given calendar year. Competitions that charge a fee to enter are excluded. Consideration is given to the work of poets who are native-born or residents of a European country.
