We are looking forward to the exciting workshop with long time friend and former leader of Pens, Jan Watts. These events are always fun, and educational too !
We are opening this meeting to both members and non members as it is an extraordinary event and we do like to share our good fortune with friends.
I thought we might write a Haibun. As preparation – I’d like people to bring along a picture or a photo to write about. A view of a place in nature would be great or anything else to be honest. It just needs to be something that stirs a connection. With a haibun under our belt then I thought we might take them into performance.
‘What’s a Haibun?’ we hear some of you say. One definition is…
A haibun may record a scene, or a special moment, in a highly descriptive and objective manner or may occupy a wholly fictional or dream-like space. An accompanying haiku may have a direct or subtle relationship with the prose and encompass or hint at the gist of what is recorded in the prose sections. (Wikipedia)
If you would like to join us, please let us know if you are attending so that we can cater for numbers for the teas and coffee plus of course biscuits! If you can reply to this email it would be very helpful and feel free to bring others along if you know anyone who might be interested.
Please note, for Non Members of Pens, there will be a small charge of £3.00 per person to help cover costs; this is payable on the day.
