In honor of the Pawling Library’s centennial celebration, this Poetry Workshop will examine the use of the short poetic form from the 1920’s to our present day. We will define several of the shorter forms, including haiku, haibun, tanka, acrostic, cinquain and villanelle. During the writing segment, we will choose one, and create a poem. Assignments may be completed at home and brought to our next workshop.

About our presenter: Marian Grudko is the author of Lucinda Snowdrop and co-author of Claudine: A Fairy Tale for Exceptional Grownups, with T.A. Young. She is also a composer and storyteller, and her work can be seen on her new and evolving YouTube channel.
