“Sustaining the Soul” with Marilyn Shoemaker Hazelton

Date/Time Sunday, October 26, 2014
from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM

In the Oct. 26 session we will explore how the Japanese poetic forms can enhance our lives and our art.

“These poetic forms affected a photo series I just sent for a show in France at the end of October. I chose my photographs thinking in “haiku”. The end result was interesting and quite different than it would have been otherwise.” Florence Rodale

Open to writers and photographers — a daylong supportive workshop to explore the Japanese poetic forms of haibun and tanka prose in relationship to photographs. Within a beautiful farm setting, you will learn possibilities for connecting words with images. Experience the potential for incorporating haibun and tanka prose as inspiration and support for your creative work. Experiment with sequencing photos with words, and words with photos.

Create a short story with images and words. Develop or refine an idea for a project. Discussions of participants’ work will include how these poetic forms can energize and inspire your creative projects.

Morning program:
9:00 – 12:30 am: Review or learn the rhythms and shifts of haiku and tanka.
Take photos and collect words and phrases on a nature walk, on site at FloreAnt Farmette.
Review /draft different kinds of prose for haibun and tanka, and draft prose with poetry of your choice inspired by photos taken on our walk or photos you brought to the workshop.
Finalize images you will work with in the afternoon (to be uploaded for later presentation). Tips on revision strategies.

12:30 – 1:00pm: Lunch break

1:15: Creative writing based on chosen images
2:30: Your poems will be included in a presentation template along with your images and projected for reading and discussion with the group.
