About the Author

Steven Brewer, while a doctoral student, no longer had time to study Esperanto. But he could find enough time to write haiku in Esperanto, which he would exchange with his brother by email. This led to a fascination with the contrast between the utter flexibility of the rules of Esperanto and the rigid structure and minimalistic limits of haiku. Currently Brewer posts haiku daily at twitter.com/limako.

Brewer lives in Amherst, Massachusetts and is Director of the Biology Computer Resource Center at the University of Massachusetts Amherst.
