A musician as well as a poet, Marco Fraticelli began writing haiku 40 years ago. For most of that time, he has served on the executive of Haiku Canada. He has had a number of collections of his haiku published, as well as having his work included in many anthologies and publications. He is the publisher of the Hexagram series of books (King’s Road Press). A recent book weaves together his haiku with stories from found diaries dating from the early 20th century: Drifting (catkin press, Carleton Place, Ontario, 2013). He is currently working on another collection of haibun featuring the haiku of Chiyo-ni and his letters inspired by these poems, as well as a chapbook featuring 40 of his well-known and new haiku.
