Haiku Mint

Haiku Mint 4-Week Online Workshop – starting 01 October 2016

“Haiku is not a shriek, a howl, a sigh, or a yawn; rather, it is the deep breath of life.””
— Santoka Taneda

Three lines. Approx. 17 syllables. The supreme task of revealing human experience in the smallest possible poetic space. Any writer – from prose to poetry to TV scripts –  should spend at least some time of their life exploring this minimalist art form. Because it is a powerful teacher of concision and balance, of saying not too much, but just enough. Because it makes your writing start from the senses, not from thoughts, and ultimately makes the two indistinguishable.

What’s more: haiku-writing fits into even the busies days in life.

Join 4 thrilling weeks of haiku-minting with daily incentives and sharing, insights into the craft and inspirations from its masters. At the very least, you will be able to appreciate this fine poetic form on a new level. At best, you will have (re)ignited a great habit and approach your writing and especially your editing with new vigor and clarity.

Fee : € 100.00

Workshop duration: 4 weeks

Includes: digital haiku anthology; live online get-together for kick-off and finish; detail feedback from your workshop leader on a haiku sequence or loose set
