On February 1, 2014 The Edmonton Poetry Festival presents an enlightening haiku workshop, facilitated by Mr Patrick Pilarski. In case you don’t know, Patrick is, along with his partner Nicole Pakan, behind the brilliant zen-like website, Daily The site is an object lesson in restraint and beauty – they publish a single haiku each day by a rotating roster of international authors. It’s truly one of the best haiku websites out there, and it appears on the first page of results for a Google search for “haiku”. Awesome! We’re stoked to have Patrick leading this workshop!

Here are the complete registration and payment details, and the basic skinny is below:
