Haiku Workshop for Beginners: 28 January 2017

Julia Wakefield Houghton is running an open workshop at the Box Factory in Adelaide, where you can learn the basics of writing haiku, or refine your skills. Bookings are required, as numbers are restricted. There is a small payment and afternoon tea will be provided. Full details in the PDF file


The haiku is an ancient Japanese poetry form, but it is as relevant today as it has always been. Western poets have adopted and adapted the form to suit contemporary tastes, and  the fact that the form continues to evolve in Japan is, paradoxically, entirely in keeping with tradition.

Julia Wakefield will give a brief introduction to the combined complexity and simplicity of the haiku form. After a short break, there will be a series of group exercises that focus on composing haiku.

Refreshments provided.
A Gold Coin donation is requested to cover expenses.
