‘How To Haiku’ Workshop
May 16, 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm$20.00
‘How To Haiku’ Workshop with Michael Dylan Welch – via Zoom
An overview of haiku poetry, and a short history of Japanese haiku and its major practitioners. What do you shoot for when you write haiku? This workshop explores the targets to aim for, and why 5-7-5 is not necessarily one of them. Learn why 5-7-5 is a sort of urban myth for writing haiku in English, and why other techniques such as season words and a two-part structure are better targets to aim for in writing these brief poems of personal experience. Includes writing exercises, sharing and feedback.
