Please join us for More Than the Sum of Its Parts: A Haiku & Haibun Workshop with Rich Youmans.
Haiku has been defined as "the essence of a moment keenly perceived." Haibun takes that one step further, combining haiku and prose so that those "keenly perceived" moments deepen and expand the narrative. This session will explore what a haiku is (and is not), how poets have used the building blocks of the form to re-create moments that are often overlooked, and how haiku can be fused with prose to deepen the reader's experience. There will be an opportunity to try your hand at writing both forms.
