August 16, 2009

SA Haiku group members, Lyn Arden, Belinda Broughton, Alex Ask and Marilyn Linn met on 1st August at the SA Writers Centre. Some of the members went out for a ginko in the back alleys or the Botanic Gardens.

After a hour we met again and spent the rest of the meeting looking at each other’s work
and making suggestions for improvements. We find this most valuable, as we learn a lot
from one another during the process.
