HomePoetry Workshop: Introduction to Haiku (Grades 5 and up)

Sunday, November 12

2:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Register Below. A haiku is a short poem, often written in a form other than the classical 5-7-5 syllables, that records “the essence of a moment keenly perceived, in which nature is linked to human nature.” Through various exercises and methods, Stanford M. Forrester will introduce participants to the process of composing, revising, and reciting haiku. Everyone is welcome—no experience necessary. Grades 5 and up. Light refreshments served.

Stanford M. Forrester is a past president of the Haiku Society of America and founder and editor of bottle rockets: a collection of short verse. He is a recipient of a Greater Hartford Arts Fellowship selected by the Greater Hartford Arts Council’s Board of Directors.
