Martin Lucas is a haiku poet, birder and table tennis player – not necessarily in that order or to professional standard. His academic background is in English Literature, Religious Studies and Creative Writing, including a PhD from Cardiff, University of Wales, for his thesis on haiku in Britain (2001). He is a past president of the British Haiku Society and has edited or co-edited three major haiku anthologies. Since 1996 he has managed and edited the haiku journal Presence, soon to reach its fiftieth issue, and recently assessed as “the most important haiku journal in English outside the United States” (Haiku in English).
