I created is/let as a gallery to present some of the most interesting, intriguing, and challenging haiku being written in English today. I want it to be a space for writers of ku to experiment, play, and provoke.

is/let is on-going. No issues will be published, only individual poems, whenever possible. I try to publish one a day.
