Writing haiku helps us recognize and capture the beautiful moments in our daily lives. We will explore ancient and contemporary haiku traditions, navigate a series of meditative haiku-writing exercises, and dive into some creative journaling and visual art techniques to expand on our work. By the end of the workshop, you will have a beautiful collection of haiku poems, haiku crafts, and a solid start on a haiku journal based on your daily experiences and preferred methods of expression. No previous art or poetry experience required!
NO SET MEETING TIME: This workshop will take place over Wet Ink, which is an asynchronous creative writing platform. The instructor will post a lesson and assignment at the beginning of each week, and participants can log in and read the lessons/post assignments/comment on other classmates’ work at their convenience. Shortly before the start date, participants will receive an invite from Wet Ink to create their login info and access the class. Please check your spam if you don’t see it.
