Poetry Workshop: Haiku and the Longer Poem

Haiku has influenced and inspired the poets William Carlos Williams, Mary Oliver, and Billy Collins, to name a few. Now it’s your turn to discover how this compact form can heighten the power of concrete imagery in your poetry. In this class, we will cover the “how-to” of haiku, in addition to reviewing the basic elements underlying poetry of any length or style—meter, metaphor, and musicality. Writing assignments and in-class discussions of your work will further hone your skills. Join us as we explore this ancient Japanese art form and its relevance to your own writing. No previous background in literature required. Limited to 12.
