Haiku Intensive [Janaka Stucky]
Often misrepresented or only partially understood, the heart of haiku contains many lessons for poets in its compacted form: image, metaphor, enjambment, attention, word choice, and silence. We will survey the history and core principles while reading ancient and contemporary examples. Multiple haiku will be written and workshopped throughout the class. By the end you will be equipped to incorporate the powerful discipline of haiku into your life, using it to hone your poetic practice and increase your daily awareness.
