Naviar Records has organized haiku workshops since 2017 during its
Naviar Haiku Fest. Now we want to offer the chance to learn more about
this fascinating traditional form of Japanese poetry also to those based
outside of the UK with an online introductory course to haiku.
this 2-hour webinar, we’ll analyze the rules for writing a haiku and
its structure, how to add a Kigo (seasonal reference) and Kireji
(cutting word). We’ll read and analyzed poems, as well as write our own.
The workshop will be divided in two parts:
- Introduction, the evolution of haiku, The Great Four haiku masters, haiku in the West (1 hour).
- Group exercises, writing using objects, images and all five senses as a source of inspiration (1 hour).
workshop is hosted by Marco Sebastiano Alessi. Marco has been running
Naviar Records and its Haiku Music Challenge since 2014.
Once you register, a Google Hangouts invitation will be sent.
