Haiku poetry is an essential aspect of Japanese culture and language and has gained popularity outside Japan as well. Do you recognize this famous haiku by Matsuo Basho?

In these workshops, Japanese haiku poet Ms. Sho Otaka will teach how to write haiku using one to three lines of 17 or fewer syllables, as well as explaining how kigo - words or phrases that symbolize the season of the poem, have a role in haiku poetry and Japanese language. (It would be great if you can think of a word, image, etc. related to fall/winter that you want to use to create your own haiku before you come to this workshop!)
