We are very excited to be hosting a weekend of beautiful haiku, learning, writing, eating, drinking and exploring Mineral Point.

This year’s program will include:

  • Charlie Trumbull telling us the latest on Haikupedia and the Haiku Database;
  • Lew Watts giving us insight into “How Haibun Works: The 5 Sparks;”
  • Marjorie Buettner enlightening us on “Sijo: Korean Poetry;”
  • Shan Thomas describing the contents of the American Haiku Magazine archives;
  • and a special presentation by Randy and Shirley Brooks celebrating the life of haiku master poet, Bill Pauly.

All this and our usual open readings, Friday afternoon reception, a banquet on Saturday, a Ginko Walk and Mineral Point’s Gallery night. The cost will be $40, which includes the Saturday banquet. (An additional charge of $25 may be paid on site for a guest for the banquet.)
