  1. Thanks for inviting me onto this incredible project!

    I’ve been involved in many haiku projects and events for schoolchildren and youngsters, including a 1000 verse poem of haiku and related verses in both the City of Bath, and the wonderfully friendly Hull in the North of England. 🙂

    I regularly run online workshops in haiku (and related genres) with my wife and poet Karen Hoy, as well as leading ginko (haiku walking & writing) events such as this one this April:

    Towards the later end of 2018 I’ll be doing a ginko in Swindon too!

    What is a ginko?
    The last five minutes show you one we did in Bradford on Avon, filmed by NHK TV of Japan:

    My Area 17 blog is packed with information about haiku: http://area17.blogspot.com

    And we do various kinds of learning/courses in haiku etc…
