A retired librarian, Martin has been writing and publishing for over thirty years. His poetry appears in Paper Wasp, Dew-On-The-Line, Still Anthology, and Indigo. His interests are wide-ranging, from puppetry (as a professional puppeteer he has performed at the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts), jazz and oral storytelling. He also practices origami and paper cuts in both hua yang Chinese and Victorian style and conducts workshops for high school students in origami and poetry.
We welcome him to Haigaonline with a pair of haiga that Linda has crafted. The images use Martin's own creations in paper as well as his haiku.
