Apologies: Margaret Fensom, Athena Zaknic.

A special thank you to Belinda Broughton from all members, and from Lyn in particular, for all her help in establishing our fledgling group. Belinda has indicated that for health reasons she will not be attending the group in future, as she needs to cut back on her activities.

Tanka Workshop by Belinda Broughton: Belinda presented to the group a tanka workshop, supported by written material and examples of favourite tanka. We then practiced writing some tanka, guided by Belinda’s expert advice. Thank you Belinda for your expert help and the informative workshop!

Kukai: following the workshop we held a kukai, sharing and enjoying haiku written by group members. The meeting finished at 1 pm.

The group will not meet in March, but we are planning to write a collaborative Renku between the February and April meeting via email.
