Haiku Now with Jeannie Martin (A Bisl)

Online, on Zoom


Haiku is a short nature poem of direct, immediate experience. In haiku we connect deeply with the natural world and with each other. In our time together we will learn about haiku: its form, structure and history; read many haiku, both famous and not so famous, and try our hands at writing haiku using easy prompts. Anyone age 14 and older is invited to this supportive, fun workshop.

Jeanne Martin has been writing haiku since the late 1990s when she joined the Boston Haiku Society. The author of several chapbooks of haiku, she has also published in a number of haiku anthologies and journals. She teachers haiku in a variety of community settings including the Cambridge Center for Adult Education, senior centers, nursing homes, and in a prison where she does haiku with men serving life sentences. She also leads haiku retreats in places like Oklahoma, North Carolina, Massachusetts and New Hampshire. In 2013, her book, Clear Water: a haiku invitation into our luminous, sacred world was published by a collective in Oklahoma, Red Moon Publications. She is most invested in bringing haiku to marginalized populations, and is currently working with formerly homeless older men in Boston.
