Haiku & Senryu With Joan Canby

March 9 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm CST

Most of us are familiar with the Haiku poetic form–or at least we think we are.

Haiku are 3 lined short poems about nature with a serious theme and have a Japanese kigo (seasonal word) or a kireji (a cutting word).  Senryu are 3 lined short poems about the human condition, often humorous or cynical that do not use kigo or kireji words. In this 2 hour workshop, we’ll divide the time roughly in half between reading and composition, with the opportunity to share before the end of the workshop.

Joan Canby is a member of the Haiku Society of America.  Her haiku/senryu have been published in Modern Haiku, Frogpond and Ouachita Life.  Her website is: joancanby.com.
