All are welcome to participate - please be sure to RSVP here on Meetup.com. If you are able to, please print, read, and make comments in advance on the three poems to be workshopped. If you are unable to print them in advance, extra copies will be available at the workshop.
Those reading materials can be found here - look for files that include the date of this workshop:
1. Three poems (by three separate poets) will be workshopped by the group.
2. We'll do a brief survey of haiku - traditional and contemporary, with a focus not just on examples but also on the form's cultural history and how it gained such wide popularity.
The voluntary take-home challenge: You guessed it - write a haiku!
3. If anyone did the take-home challenge from the last workshop, we'll briefly share those with the group.
Reading materials can be found here (http://burlingtonwritersworkshop.com/files/).
