Haiku poet Matsuo Basho wrote: “When writing about the bamboo, become 
the bamboo. When writing about the pine become the pine.” For twelve 
years, Maggie Chula lived the life of a poet in a ramshackle Japanese 
house, wandering around mountain temples and gardens writing haiku. She 
also taught English and creative writing at Kyoto universities and 
studied the arts of flower arrangement and woodblock printing. She will 
talk about writing haiku, tanka, and haibun, and how living in Kyoto 
inspired her poetry.

/Conversations With Writers/ invites authors to read and tell us about 
their work and their writing methods. Not just a reading, but an event 
for audience members to interact and ask questions. It's an informal 
atmosphere to help us all better understand the craft of writing.
