As we leave January and enter February with Orion shining at its brightest in the night sky be inspired to write haiku from our smorgasbord of themes, prompts and activities featured this week in THE DAILY HAIKU. This is also a chance for those who have already written haiku on these themes to showcase their favourites. Something I enjoy doing is writing out themes on a pieces of paper, folding them up and then picking them out from a hat and going with the choice.
Enjoy engaging with the featured writing workshops in the links below. I would particularly urge you to share them with anyone who has not written creatively before and they work with any age group. They are a fun way to explore creativity and connect, as Sébastien Revon discovered when he experienced the shell workshop with his six year old son and shared the wonderful results.
