Bindii Japanese Genre Poetry Group Presents a Haiku Workshop by Julia Wakefield

An introduction to Haiku
Saturday 28 January, from 1 – 3 pm

The haiku is an ancient Japanese poetry form, but it is as relevant today as it has always been. Western poets have adopted and adapted the form to suit contemporary tastes, and  the fact that the form continues to evolve in Japan is, paradoxically, entirely in keeping with tradition.

Julia Wakefield will give a brief introduction to the combined complexity and simplicity of the haiku form. After a short break, there will be a series of group exercises that focus on composing haiku.

Refreshments provided.
