Report on Bindii Japanese Genre Poetry Group Meeting: 7 October 2017

Our follow up haibun workshop presented by Maeve Archibald was an opportunity to share the haibun written from the prompts provided at our August workshop. Six members attended and read work on a variety of subjects that had stimulated their imagination. Helpful critique and suggestions followed each reading.

As a further follow up, Lee Bentley, liaising with Maeve, will intermittently email some writing stimulus ideas to members. It is hoped that this will provide some continuity between our bimonthly meetings. Continue reading “Report on Bindii Japanese Genre Poetry Group Meeting: 7 October 2017”
