After a brief introduction to haiku, the very short poem genre, we’ll set out on a walk - known as a ginko in Japan - looking for inspiration. Afterwards, in a relaxed session, Alan will show how our rough notes and drafts can become polished haiku. Bring a packed-lunch, we’ll provide the sushi! Alan Summers is President of the United Haiku and Tanka Society and co-founder of Call of the Page. NHK TV (Japan) filmed Alan’s Haiku Journey which included a ginko.

Tickets £3 per person
