Fun with Haiku

R2E 2013 Logo

Time: 10:00 am to 12:00 Noon
Room:
SEM II A-2107

Session Description:

We will do a brief overview of the Haiku Masters and gain an understanding of what is required in the Haiku form. Then we will go out on campus and write Haiku. We will come back together as a group and discuss our various poems keeping in mind the structure and rules of Haiku. You will be introduced to the humor in Haiku in the form of Kerouac pops. Writing Haiku is a way of being in the moment and observing your surroundings with awakened senses.
