Writing Classes

Japanese Poetry-Tanka
An introduction to Tanka, an ancient Japanese poetry form.

The form of Japanese poetry most familiar to Americans is the haiku, the 17-syllable poem that reached the height of its development in the seventeenth century. But the haiku derived from an older, but still popular poetic form, the waka, which had been used for a thousand years before the haiku. The word waka means "Japanese poem," and it is a form so basic to Japanese literature that Japanese still study and write it today. It is also known by the name tanka, which means "short poem."
Class Begins: March 6th

MARCH 2017 - HAIKU 201

HAIKU are short, imagistic poems about things that make people feel connected to nature. Japanese poets have written haiku for hundreds of years and in the last forty years, the appreciation of haiku has spread all over the world. The essence of haiku is the way in which it succinctly captures observations of the natural world.

Why are people writing haiku? They write it because it is enjoyable and because writing haiku gives them a new way to look at the world.

You too can write haiku!

A book by Judgement Dave. There once was a writer from Sale
Who was seeking the literary grail
He thought anything goes
From screenwriting to prose
But his poetic rhymes always did fail. Badly.

Writer. Comedian. Special snowflake. [expletive deleted] mentalist....
