Feedback from our participants for our online haiku workshops:
I am grateful for the opportunity to attend Anna Yin’s haiku writing workshops. Her passion for poetry is infectious and she works tirelessly in promoting this art form in the City of Mississauga. She’s very generous in sharing her expertise with others. In the short period that I worked with her as a mentor, I’ve learned so much and am looking forward to more. — Maria LaGarde
This is the second time I’ve attended one of Anna Yin’s workshops and each time I learned a great deal about modern English haiku. For someone just beginning to explore the genre, I found her instruction to be invaluable. In this session we were challenged to explore each other’s work, to discover what worked, what didn’t and why. I feel this deeper understanding will aid me immensely in strengthening my own haiku. —— Sally Quon
