with Carmi Soifer
writing with a finger
in the clear blue sky…
|— Kobayashi Issa
|Carmi Soifer, M.Ed.,
is an award-winning poet and writing teacher.
She brings decades of experience, care, and spirituality to her classes.
Carmi has taught community workshops on both coasts, and was Artist-in-Residence at Rocky Mountain National Park.
This class will help you enter the art of haiku by gaining an understanding of modern English-language haiku, as well as some aesthetics from the traditional Japanese.
The emphasis is on your own writing — how to take two images and let a spark light between them, how to work with season words and emotion, how to non-judgmentally approach each moment.
Participants will find themselves looking at life’s moments in a new way as we learn to “sketch from life” and take in the fall season.
The class is experiential and fun, and is open to anyone.
