Debra Woolard Bender
______________________________________________

 

(Debi) is an artist/poet who has lived in Florida since 1989,
the mother of two and grandmother of four. She grew up in an 
Air Force family, the eldest of 5 children. She felt she was an artist,
at least from her preschool years and is primarily self-taught. She began 
writing poetry in about 1965 during high school, and submitted works to 
small presses and magazines for publication through the 1970's. Finding 
haiku on the internet in 1999 her interest was renewed, and since that  time
she has focused her poetry on Asian genres, often combining poetry  and
art. Debi also enjoys experimenting and exploring in multi-genre work  and
linking poetry. She is the Development Director of the World Haiku Club http://www.worldhaikuclub.org and Editor-in-Chief of its magazine, the World
Haiku Review http://www.worldhaikureview.org . Her personal  website
with resource library is Paper Lanterns, http://www.paperlanterns.net
