The World Beyond Haiku: Examining Japanese Form
A Poetry workshop taught by Poet Laureate Georgia Popoff
This virtual workshop runs every Monday for 6 sessions from 7 – 9 PM
June 17 – July 22, 2024
Fee: $250

The beauty of haiku is its brevity, as well as its challenge, but haiku is just the first step into the forms made popular by the Japanese mystics. We will look at tanka, examine the sister forms of haiku and senryu, explore choka, haibun and zuihitsu, and create a renga together week by week.
