Facilitator - Naomi Beth Wakan


Are you a poet looking to expand your use of poetic forms? Learn about two time-honored forms of Japanese poetry: haiku (the poetry of the senses – probably the most difficult form of poetry to write) and tanka (the poetry of the heart – the longest continually written poetry form).
Participants will be introduced to an understanding of both of these wonderful ways to express one's self in poetry. This workshop is suitable for both experienced and emerging poets.


Naomi Beth Wakan is a personal essayist and the Inaugural Poet Laureate of Nanaimo. She has authored over fifty books, most recently, The Way of Tanka, an introduction to tanka writing. She is the author of the prize-winning book, Haiku: One Breath Poetry. She lives on
Gabriola Island in British Columbia, Canada. www.naomiwakan.com
