SFCC Library presents Contemporary Haiku and Short Forms with Miriam Sagan at 6 p.m. May 4, 2021

Contemporary Haiku and Short Forms: How To Write Flash Poems and Reduce Stress!
An online workshop with Miriam Sagan from 6 to 8 p.m. May 4

What:   SFCC Library presents an online workshop: “Contemporary Haiku and Short Forms: How To Write Flash Poems and Reduce Stress!” led by Miriam Sagan. Learn about the Japanese traditions of haiku, and how haiku is written today in English. Also expect five-line poems (tanka) and humorous poems (senryu). Haiku can be written in a peaceful garden or on a mountain, but it can also be written while you’re stuck in traffic or with a cell phone.

Expect to do a lot of writing and have some finished tiny poems that you like. There will be a handout on international haiku resources. This is for poets, journal keepers, and anyone who wants to enter the moments of life. Haiku favors the beginner!

Santa Fe Community College has a haiku pathway in its main courtyard. Some of these local haiku will also be part of the inspiration for the workshop.
