Report on Bindii Group Haibun Workshop 6 April 2011
Maeve Archibald: The workshop was presented in 3 x two hour sequential sessions. I planned the workshop this way as I considered the work too intensive to be conducted effectively in a one day session. Likewise the aspects I wanted to cover required more than 1 x two hour session, which is our usual time unit.
The aim of the workshop was to work towards a Haibun of approx 600 words and including a minimum of 3 haiku. I chose this frame as giving more than adequate opportunity for exploring both prose and poetry as poetic elements of expression in the Haibun genre.
