Sandra Simpson

Sandra Simpson lives in Tauranga and is secretary of the Katikati Haiku Pathway Committee, editor of the Haiku NewZ website and is co-organiser of this year’s Haiku Festival Aotearoa (in June). She has won several awards for her haiku and at the end of 2011 published her first collection, breath. Sandra works as a journalist and for two festivals in Tauranga (arts and garden), as well as being involved in fundraising for a new botanical garden. She believes there should be more celebrating (especially if there ‘s cake, laughing and fireworks) and is thinking of starting a petition to that end.
