Haiku offers simplicity, depth, and the ability to evoke emotion and imagery with just a few carefully chosen words.

This workshop at BARN provides an introduction to the art of haiku, with a focus on the historical and cultural context of Japanese and English haiku. You will learn about the development of haiku, its evolution as a unique form of poetry, and its influence on contemporary literature.


Richard Tice has written haiku and other Japanese short forms since 1976. Fluent in Japanese, Richard has translated more than 200 Japanese haiku and published numerous articles on the genre and the relationship between the Japanese and English forms. Two collections of his haiku and related forms have been printed, "Station Stop" and "Familiar and Foreign."
