Did you know that haiku is the most popular form of poetry written in the world today? Did you know that the 5-7-5 "traditional" syllable count is rarely utilized in modern English language haiku today? Do you want to know why? In this class you will learn how to write the Japanese forms of haiku, senryu, haibun, and haiga. You will learn the history, elements, and techniques of Japanese forms of poetry, as well as the various markets in which to publish these forms. Perhaps most importantly, you'll learn why many poets consider haiku the most fun form of poetry to write.
