The Author

A New England native,  Peter Jastermsky lives among the Joshua trees in the high desert of Southern California. He is the author of ten books of haiku-based work. His work has been featured in many journals and anthologies. In 2017, Peter invented a new linked form that is haiku-centered called split sequence. His book, Just Dust and Stone (Velvet Dusk Publishing, 2021), is a collection of more than forty collaborative split sequences, cowritten with Bryan Rickert. Peter’s recent books include Into the Stillness (Red Moon Press, 2023), and songs of blue acorns (Cyberwit, 2024).
