How can haiku, the world’s shortest poem, help you build vocabulary? Well, haiku is concerned with the specific names of things in the world around us. It’s not just enough to say “bird,” but what kind of bird: sparrow, robin, crow,…? Or if you are writing about a tree, is it an oak, maple, elm,…? Or how about a cloud: is it cirrus, nimbus, or cumulo-nimbus? This workshop will help you find the right words to create your own amazing poems and build vocabulary at the same time.

Materials: paper and pencil
