Due to an unforeseen and unfortunate injury, Patricia will be unable to attend the festival in person, yet has generously offered to record an introduction to haiku and will be laying the groundwork for haiku awareness practice along with the 7 key principles to writing Haiku. Her recorded presentation will be shown at the workshop. In addition, we have the great honor and privilege to host Reed Bye who will be appearing on stage as a co-presenter. Reed has taught creative writing and poetics at Naropa University over the past twenty years and will lead participants through haiku exercises, including some discussion and feedback. We are delighted to have both talented writers joining the BAFF line-up.
