ANNOUNCEMENT: free workshop

Exploring the One-Breath Poem:
Discovering Your Haiku-Mind
led by Billie Dee

Sunday, March 11, 1:00 – 2:30 p.m.

Open Door Books
4761 Cass Street, San Diego 92109
(corner of Cass & Missouri) ~ 858-270-8642

     This will be an overview for those new to or curious about the haiku genre, as well as more experienced writers who would like to expand their perspectives and workshop poems-in-progress. We will concentrate on the elements of contemporary English Language Haiku, a form poorly understood by most people who were introduced to haiku in school. The introduction will be followed by a 45-minute interactive comment and critique session of participant poems. Please bring recent work if you wish to participate in this part of the workshop. The overall goal of this session is to cultivate the haiku-mind, one that seeks and captures those epiphanic moments of awareness that arise from our everyday lives.

OPEN DOOR POETRY: San Diego's longest-running poetry reading takes place each 2nd Sunday of the month, 3:00 - 5:00 p.m., hosted by Jackleen Holton. Billie Dee will be a featured reader on 3/11, followed by an open mic.
