A Poetry Workshop Facilitated by Yaddyra Peralta

In this workshop, participants will learn the basics of the Japanese literary form of senryu, the lighthearted cousin of haiku. Consisting of three lines of approximately 17 syllables, the senryu focuses on humans and human emotions, the good and the bad, from a humorous perspective. Following the workshop, in which participants will learn about the history of the senryu and haiku, they will examine and discuss various examples before touring the Morikami’s beautiful gardens to generate their own senryu.

She has taught writing at Miami Dade College, Homestead Correctional Institution, and for O, Miami’s Sunroom project.
