Haiku at Essex Poetry Festival

If I was in the UK this month you'd find me here on 27th September:

Nature walk and haiku poetry workshop at Chafford Gorges Visitor Centre, led by award-winning poets John Barlow and Matthew Paul. The workshop will explore various ways of writing haiku in English and will feature several group activities. Participants will be encouraged to write haiku on the day, and there will be the opportunity to discuss these or haiku you may already have written, both in a group context and/or one-to-one with the poets. Whilst concentrating on haiku, the workshop may also touch upon related poetic forms such as tanka and haibun.

Suitable for all ages and abilities - from those completely new to haiku to more experienced writers.
