Two-Night Haiku Adult Ed Class


  • Camden Hills Regional High School 25 Keelson Drive Rockport, ME, 04856 United States (map)

The centuries-old Japanese haiku has become one of the most universally popular poetic forms, in part because of its simplicity of form—three, unrhymed lines totaling 17 syllables. You might think any first-grader can write a haiku, but there's a lot more going on than just counting syllables! In this introductory workshop we will look at the long tradition of haiku as nature poem. Over the two nights, we will explore the history of the form, read classic Japanese haiku in translation, and practice techniques for writing and sharing our own short poems. No prior writing experience necessary. 

This class, offered by the Five Town CSD Adult & Community Education program, will be held at Camden Hills Regional High School in Rockport. You can sign up via the Adult Ed office starting in September.
