Advanced Haiku: Haiku for Wordsmiths
In this class, we will review (or learn) the typical American Haiku and then delve into a more advanced and traditional version, including mini-lessons on syllables, meter, and sensory details.
Although our focus will be on the Haiku, we will begin our first conversation-based class by discussing the idea of poetry in general.
