Haiku: an introduction to Japanese poetry

Workshop by Helen

Friday from 9:40 PM - 10:40 PM in Workshop 2

Haikus are a form of short poetry originating from 17th Century Japan which are characterised by their use of syllable structure, juxtaposition and abstraction of ideas, and references to time and place. In a modern world where communication often comes with character and time limits, we need to find ways to communicate complex ideas in short and more engaging ways. Fun, easy, and they make everything sound better (and cleverer), Haikus are the answer! This workshop will give a brief history of Haikus, an overview of the basics, and some fun wordy activities before letting people unleash their vocabularic prowess on emf! Haiku, timeless poetry Juxtaposing cherry blossom with Syllabic framework Modern nonsense Distilled to bite-sized chunks Enrich souls A history, a review, Vocabulary unleashed! Challenge accepted.
