Haiku Workshop

This annual workshop gives a background and history to haiku, the Japanese form of poetry that has become popular the world over. It will include readings of some of the most famous examples, and will invite participants to write their own poems, under the guidance of one of Japan’s most prominent haiku poets.

The workshop is run by Councillors of the Haiku International Association, Emiko Miyashita, a prominent and widely published haiku poet, award-winning translator and secretary of the Haiku Poets Association International Department in Tokyo, and Hana Fujimoto, a member of the Japan Traditional Haiku Association and writer for the haiku magazine Tamamo.
