This introductory course on Zoom focuses on the appreciation, enjoyment, writing, and publishing of haiku, one of the world’s shortest literary art forms.  The class will cover the history and evolution of haiku, its structure and aesthetic principles; the best current practices in writing English-language haiku; and where to submit haiku for publication. 

You will read and write haiku, share your own poems, engage in peer critiques, and benefit from expert guidance.  At the end of the course, you will be encouraged to submit some of your haiku to several edited journals, hoping to have one or more accepted for publication.

Instructor:  Anna Eklund-Cheong

A haiku poet with over 100 haiku published in a dozen edited journals, she has received Honorable Mention, Golden Haiku Contest, Washington, DC (2018); Runner-up, Golden Haiku Contest, Washington, DC (2015, 2016, and 2017).  Her poems have appeared in Frogpond, The Heron's Nest, Blithe Spirit, Presence, Hedgerow, Acorn, Failed Haiku, cattails, and tinywords, among other publications.
