A LONG POET'S GUIDE TO HAIKU:
THE APPLEHOUSE HAIKU & GINKO WORKSHOP

10am to 4.30pm on Saturday 9th June 2007

Suitable for poets and writers of all levels – maximum of 12.

No previous experience of writing or reading haiku is necessary.

Haiku is simple, but requires discipline to write well. Learn the techniques behind contemporary English-language haiku with writing exercises and discussion. We will cover the world's shortest literary form, from its origins in Japan, to its current world-wide practice.

There will also be an opportunity for a traditional Japanese haiku-writing walk (a 'ginko') in the AppleHouse orchard.

Feel free to bring thirteen copies of any haiku you have written already.

10am to 4.30pm on Saturday 9th June 2007
Day Workshop for £42 including two-course lunch with wine
