March 20, 2010 - Anonymous Haiku Workshop

On Saturday, March 20th, inspired by the workshop led by Michael Dylan Welch during the HSA Meeting weekend, the Southern California Haiku Study Group held an Anonymous Haiku Workshop in lieu of our normal meeting format. The Blue Room of the Pacific Asia Museum was full - twenty-one poets participated!

The meeting started with a read-around of recent haiku. Participants who had not brought a haiku to read were encouraged to select one from one of the books/journals scattered on the table:
The Haiku Anthology edited by Cor van den Heuvel
Selected Haiku by Nichaolas A. Virgilio
March 2009 issue of Acorn
Water Lines by Carolyn Hall
where the wind turns, the 2009 Red Moon Anthology by Red Moon Press
Haiku Volume 2, Spring by R.H. Blyth
In addition, Michael L. Evans was visiting from the state of Washington and was able to attend. Michael prepared a trifold to read from. He presented it as a gift to all who attended.
