12th Annual Haiku U: A Poetry Workshop
Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens
Presented by Palm Beach Poetry Festival
A Poetry Workshop Facilitated by Yaddyra Peralta.
In this workshop, participants will learn the basics of the Japanese literary form of senryu, the lighthearted cousin of haiku. Consisting of three lines of approximately 17 syllables, the senryu focuses on humans and human emotions, the good and the bad, from a humorous perspective. Following the workshop, in which participants will learn about the history of the senryu and haiku, they will examine and discuss various examples before touring the Morikami’s beautiful gardens to generate their own senryu.
Facilitator Yaddyra Peralta, MFA, is the former Assistant Director of the Palm Beach Poetry Festival and an Associate Editor at Mango Publishing. She has taught writing at Miami Dade College, Homestead Correctional Institution, and for O, Miami’s Sunroom project. Her work has appeared in Miami Rail, Ploughshares, Tigertail, Hinchas de Poesia, Eight Miami Poets, and The Miami Herald.
