Report on Bindii Japanese Genre Poetry Group meeting: 2 June 2018


Members met at the Box Factory for our meeting on 2 June, with Maeve Archibald as our workshop presenter.
The meeting consisted of a series of exercises designed to stimulate ideas for writing haibun.
Maeve presented each exercise and the participants wrote, and then read what they had written.

We hope, of course, that this will result in some worthwhile haibun being developed after the meeting. So that other groups can share the workshop ideas, we have added them below this report.

There was a vigorous discussion of the work presented, mostly haiku, with a sprinkling of tanka/kyoka. We also explored more general principles of writing haiku.


We were pleased to welcome Jeremy Ng to his first attendance at the group.
