Haiku Workshop

I'll be offering a haiku workshop at the South Fork Natural History Museum, in Bridgehampton, on Sun., July 17, from 10 AM-12 noon. Here is the announcement on the museum website,

Haiku Workshop

7/17/2011 · 10 am - Saturday
Leader: George Held, SoFo Board of Directors

George Held, a widely published poet, will teach the philosophy and practice of the haiku, a concise Japanese verse form that focuses on an instant in nature. The SoFo Museum and outdoor surroundings offer many opportunities for a “haiku moment,” when the writer has an insight into a natural object that can be expressed in about 12-17 syllables. Only a pen or pencil and a small notepad are needed. For adults and youngsters 16 and older. Limited enrollment, reserve now!

To make a reservation for this program, please call the museum at 631-537-9735.

If you can make it, that would be cool. Please share with anyone who might be interested.
