In this workshop, you will learn key techniques for writing haiku and seek inspiration from the sights, sounds and smells of the season. The workshop will include a walk in the beautiful Lafcadio Hearn Japanese gardens in search of ‘haiku moments’.

The workshop will be led by acclaimed poet and haijin Maeve O’Sullivan, author of four haiku / poetry collections from Alba Publishing (UK), the most recent of which is Elsewhere (2017).

Cost: €25 per person plus garden entry fee of €5
