Tom Clausen is a lifelong Ithacan and a member of the Route 9 Haiku Group. He developed an interest in haiku and other brief poetic forms after realizing he needed more discipline in his writing attempts. His poetry has received many awards, most recently First Place in the the Mildred Kanterman Memorial Book Award (Haiku Society of America, 2014) for his latest collection Laughing to Myself. For many years, Tom has coordinated the Daily Haiku website: https://haiku.mannlib.cornell.
