Cor van den Heuvel's Baseball Haiku Talk now on video (free)

This just in from Cor van den Heuvel:

Dear HSA Member,

In case you've not heard, my talk and reading from Baseball Haiku given at the Chautauqua Institute in June with Al Pizzarelli and Ed Markowski is now on line as a video at

When you get the home page, just click Culture, then click Sports and you will get a Sports features page with the talk as one of the spotlighted features. You can then click on to the video for highlights or for the complete talk and readings.

This is an important website, famous people from all fields are presented giving talks, interviews, or readings in a variety of impressive venues. (fora is the plural of forum). The talks are rated as to how many times they've been played (viewed), so please spread the word to anyone you think might be interested.

The video is now rated fifth among all the sports talks. If we can get it higher this could encourage interest in haiku and hopefully make publishers more receptive to our books.

This is not the same talk as the one I give on the Haiku North America 2007 Winston-Salem video. (That one includes readings by nine of the poets from Baseball Haiku.)

Folks, we may all benefit from Cor's request. Please support Cor and the other poets in Baseball Haiku by visiting and watching the video.
