In Memoriam

Ken Jones
18 May 1930 - 2 August 2015

Ken JonesKen Jones lived in Wales with his wife Noragh. His writing reflects both the people and landscapes of his native land. Though his career centered on higher education, he also served as a peace, ecological, and social activist. Ken became a Zen and Ch’an practitioner after years of Buddhist training. He was a longtime co-editor of Contemporary Haibun Online. A prolific writer, Ken’s haiku and haibun were published in haiku magazines and anthologies throughout the world. His collected works include Bog Cotton (2012), Stone Leeks (2009), The Parsley Bed (2006), Stallion’s Crag (2003), Arrow of Stones (2001), and Pilgrim Foxes (co-authored with James Norton and Sean O’Connor, 2001). A final book (Gone Away) is forthcoming and deals with Ken’s protracted battle with cancer.
