Lighting the Global Lantern: A Teacher's Guide to Writing Haiku and Related Literary Forms
“Perhaps when you have read your copy of Lantern, you will know what to do next… every writing/arts teacher you know should own a copy. And every school board newsletter editor should be acquainted with this book. For haiku to move forward in this century, this is the book that will make the evolution possible… Lantern resonates equally as a general field guide to some of the best haiku, and best thinking about haiku, that has occurred in North America in recent years. Terry Ann Carter did not miss her mark.”
- Lin Geary, Haiku Canada Review

Lighting the Global Lantern is clear and easy to read. It will serve as a fine resource for teachers who want to take their students beyond counting syllables to a better understanding of the true nature of haiku.
- Marco Fraticelli, haiku poet/educator/musician/editor

Lighting the Global Lantern should be in every educational library worldwide.”
- Shelley Smith-Dael, professor, Taylor’s College, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

“Terry Ann Carter is a leading voice in contemporary haiku education. As a poet she is a masterful and respected artist; as an educator she has inspired and guided thousands of young people to find their own voices and create original poetry. Lighting the Global Lantern is for any teacher who would like to teach haiku and its related forms. It is also accessible for students who want to work independently. I whole-heartedly recommend this guide to anyone looking for poetic inspiration.”
- Annie Jilbert, United World College of South East Asia, Singapore
