Forms & Features at Compound Yellow: Tanka Poetry Workshop

All experience levels are welcome to a discussion and creative workshop run by Poetry Foundation library coordinator Maggie Queeney. In February, we explore tanka, an ancient Japanese mood poem often composed in sequence or conversation.

The group will read and discuss a wide variety of poems. A creative workshop, where participants will be guided through composing original tankas, will conclude the session.

Space is limited. To register, please email
