Introduction – Haibun Assignments

DSC_2176

“The goal of every writer is to be read. There are no exceptions to this rule.”

Welcome.

Consider the Haibun Haven (among other things) a workshop for the purpose of further enabling writers to express themselves through words that are richer, more complete and enticing. The goal: To further the development of one’s individual style, through the rich format of haibun writing. The end results: Learning to present passages of written words so distinctly vivid and pure, readers will want to read more of your work.

Haibun: Haibun is a writing method. A formula or template.  There is a certain manner or thought process that goes along with this structure. Understanding both at the beginning will be helpful. For more information on the nature of the haibun, click here

Haibun: A combination of both prose (descriptive writing) and haiku (Japanese Poetry).

Consider then, this workshop as a learning place. It is relaxed, and artistic. Your keyboard and/or paper journal – your canvas; words – your paint and these lessons, where you will open your mind to artistic possibilities with your written words.

As time permits I will introduce you to a Haibun Assignment. Yours to complete at your desire. No time limits just a potential catalyst to spur you on.

I wish you good fortune in your writing,

~ Penny
