John J. Polozzolo

I began reading and writing haiku about 30 years ago. My first published pieces appeared in the 70's with early encouragement from editors Lorraine Harr, Dr. Eric Amann, and Robert Spiess.

I received a Bachelor's degree in English and a Master's in Education. I'm a former English teacher, potter, public speaker, and for the past 15 years, president and director of an educational training company specializing in preparing adult candidates for various entrance examinations.

I live in the shining beauty of the Lakes Region of New Hampshire with my wife, Susan. I have a son, Mark. Painting, pottery, and poetry have been lifelong passions, and my love of the brush and raku brought me to haiga.

I've had shows of my abstract art in a number of galleries. I've won a few haiku awards. This collection of haiga is my first ... it is dedicated to my whole family ... and is entitled,

With love, Zolo. 



I want to thank Randy Brooks for his keen eye and editorial advice, and Jeanne Emrich, whose expertise and encouragement have been invaluable.  e-mail address for John J. Polozzolo:
