      EVENT DETAILS
      HAIKU WORKSHOP

      What is a haiku? How do I write one? Join Yaddrya Peralta, a poet and writer, in this hands-on workshop. Participants learn the basics of the Japanese literary form of haiku and haibun, which is a combination of prose and haiku. Be introduced to the history of the haibun and various examples, with a focus on the work of haiku master Kobyashi Issa whose work is known both for its humanism and its sense of humor. Haibun has often been used as a means to chronicle autobiographical experiences or to detail observations seen during travels. Workshop participants learn about the history of the forms, examine various examples, past and present, and then head to Morikami’s beautiful gardens to generate their own haiku and haibun.

      This workshop is provided in collaboration with the Palm Beach Poetry Festival www.palmbeachpoetryfestival.org
