Born in France, Gilles Fabre has been based
in Dublin, Ireland for a number of years.
Former teacher and freelance translator,
Gilles now works in the sports business and
administration. His first heroes were two
travellers: Corto Maltese and then Blaise
Cendrars. He started writing haiku during
a trip around the world in the 1990's after
years of reading and studying Matsuo Basho,
Santoka Taneda and other Japanese authors.
Haiku is now a Way of Life for Gilles and
haiku reading and writing provides a privileged
relation with Nature and people. Gilles Fabre
