You may bring along a maximum of 10 nature-centered haikus to be workshopped, 5-7-5 style or free form. You will also learn about and work through the techniques of ekphrastic haiku. Participants may want to read his book Judgement Day (The Onslaught Press, Oxford, UK) and Emptiness, both known for ekphrastic haiku, as it will enhance their learning in the masterclass. Rosenstock hopes that participants will have prepared questions, comments, queries about haiku poetry as well as the contents of these two books, if read.
