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.
