A Japanese verse form most often composed, in English versions, of three unrhymed lines of five, seven, and five syllables. A haiku often features an image, or a pair of images, meant to depict the essence of a specific moment in time.” — Poetry Foundation

In this workshop for poets and new poets, filmmakers and new filmmakers, we begin with the natural wonders of the season as our inspiration to write and share haikus and transform them into short films. Free event! Everyone welcome!

This club meets monthly! We start with a viewing of video haikus made by participants using the previous month’s prompt and then speed write haikus using a new prompt for the month to inspire the next creation. If you’d like to share work, bring a short video haiku—whatever that means to you, anything goes, not required to participate!
