Reading & Writing Haiku with Marsh Muirhead

$50, $35 mbrs. (discounted price will display for members upon login)

In reading and writing haiku we will explore the idea that haiku work as poetry, meditation, memoir, photograph, and discovery. Haiku illuminate the connection between ourselves and others and the natural world. We will discuss the early masters of the form—Buson, Issa, and Basho, then move on to current practitioners. And we will write haiku, knowing that the best of them just “happen” to the writer who pays attention and waits for the flash.
