Workshop Objective:

To learn more about and practice haiku

 Workshop Description:

Writing little three-liners; learning about the four Japanese grandmasters of haiku; understanding the zen-like attitude of this poetic form – haiku can be anything from a fun little activity to deep, life-long study.

In this interactive workshop, we will read, write and experiment with haiku. We will be inspired by its brevity and play with some of the elements common to many haiku, such as capturing the moment and connecting with nature.
