Event description

Description

Spring is here, the season of new beginnings. Why not get creative and explore the craft of English language haiku writing? In this three-hour practical workshop you’ll discover that there’s much more to composing haiku than counting syllables. Come and join with fellow JET alumni to celebrate spring in Japanese style - with poetry!


When: Sunday 24th September 2017, 1:30pm ~ 4:30pm


Where: NSW Writers’ Centre in the grounds of Callan Park, off Balmain Road in Rozelle


Who: JETAA members. Anyone can write haiku: the workshop is suitable for both complete novices and those with some haiku or other writing experience.


Workshop Leader: Leanne Mumford, JET alumni (ALT Saitama-ken 1999-2000) and published haiku poet (see:http://lemumford.id.au/)


Cost: Free, but you must register by 17th September. RSVP to info@jetaansw.org with your name, email address, and mobile phone number.


Inquiries and further details: info@jetaansw.org
