Hats Off! to Crystal Simone Smith who will receive the first Absher Initiatives Literary and Arts Grant. Her projected work will combine watercolor and haiku, a customary pairing call haiga. Although less conventional, the work will also incorporate another form of Japanese poetry called haibun, a prose poem accompanied by a haiku. The collection will be published in 2016.
