This is going to be our fourth fully digital event.
We’ll start with a free one-hour haiku webinar, followed by a series of music performances combined with a visual element throughout.
Performances will start at 8:00 PM (GMT) and can be streamed on our Youtube channel.
Haiku Webinar (6:30 – 7:30 PM GMT)
In this 1-hour webinar, we’ll analyze the rules for writing a haiku, its history and structure, how to add a Kigo (seasonal reference) and Kireji (cutting word). We’ll read and analyze poems, as well as learn how to write our own.
The workshop is hosted by Marco Sebastiano Alessi. Marco has been running Naviar Records and its Haiku Music Challenge since 2014.
Music Broadcast (8:00 – 09:30 PM GMT)
