The centuries-old Japanese haiku has become one of the most universally popular poetic forms, in part because of its simplicity--three, unrhymed lines of 17 or fewer syllables--and in part because it encourages a certain mindfulness. In this introductory workshop, we will explore the history and development of the form, read classic Japanese haiku in translation, as well as contemporary English-language haiku, and practice techniques for writing, revising, and sharing our own haiku. (For those who attended the fall workshop: while there will be some repetition of material, new and different information and activities will also be presented.)
Each of the three sessions will run from 6 - 8 pm. Cost - $30.00.
