Adult Enrichment / Writing & Literature -
Winter 2022

Celebrate the extraordinary in the ordinary with the most popular poetry form in the world. Haiku connect us more deeply to the natural world and can provide solace in difficult times.

Beginner Learn about the history and nature of haiku at this two-session workshop. We will learn about key elements of haiku, including concision, a seasonal setting, and the juxtaposition of concrete experiences. Using writing prompts, we will try our hand at writing some haiku poems. Everyone is welcome to this fun and supportive workshop, both beginners and folks who have taken haiku classes before. Please note: This class will be held online.

Intermediate This supportive writing workshop is designed for folks who have taken haiku classes or have written haiku previously. In this six-part online class, we will wade further into the haiku pond and also study other related Japanese forms of poetry. Using writing prompts, both in-class exercises and ones that are designed as opportunities to enjoy being outside between classes, we will write haiku and other forms and workshop them together, if people so desire. Please note: This class will be held online.
