Kids Haiku Workshop

WestWords is thrilled to have participated in the 2019 edition of Fisher’s Kids Festival at Campbelltown Arts Centre.

Thank you to all participants, Campbelltown Arts Centre and to Julie Thorndyke for facilitating.

Workshop outline:
Haiku poet, Julie Thorndyke ran a kids haiku workshop designed for children to turn their sensory experiences, observations and feelings into haiku poems.

Julie Thorndyke has written two collections of tanka poetry, Rick Rack and Carving Granite. Her stories and poems have appeared in literary journals and anthologies in Australia and overseas. Leader of the local Tanka Huddle, Julie was appointed continuing editor of Eucalypt: a tanka journal in 2017. Julie’s first picture book will be published by IP in 2018.
