Don't Worry, Spider! The Life and Poetry of Issa *In-Person*

Kobayashi Issa, the most beloved of Japanese haiku poets, overcame tragedy to write haiku of life and abundance. Issa is the poet of the small detail; the overlooked moment. A blade of grass in the sunlight, a spider spinning her web. We will learn about the life of Issa, read many of his haiku poems, and try our hands at writing haiku using his guidance and advice in this supportive workshop. Each participant will receive a copy of the instructor's haiku book about fireflies: Afterglow. Instructor Jeannie Martin
