Barry George is a “recovering lawyer,” who left the profession to pursue his

life-long love of poetry more intensely.  He now teaches at Community College

of Philadelphia, and uses his advocacy skills in a statewide movement to improve

part-time faculty salaries. You’ll see his attention to nature and the details of urban life, you experience Barry’s haiku, which we are honored to offer here at f/k/a. . .


Learn more about Barry at his World Haiku Bio Page.
