Report on the meeting of Bindii Japanese Poetry Genres Group for 11 April 2015.

Five members attended the Bindii meeting at 12 noon on 11 April at the Box Factory in Regent St Adelaide. The speaker for the meeting, Karin Anderson, was unavoidably delayed, so it was decided to postpone her presentation on early Japanese poetry forms until our 6 June Meeting.
The group will launch their new anthology: Haiku Bindii Vol. 2: Willow Light at the Box Factory from 2 pm on Saturday 25 April. The Launch Speaker will be Rob Walker, who will also play his shakuhachi.

Readings by members from the book will follow and refreshments will be provided. It should be a delightful event. The book has already been printed and members were shown an example. It is 60 pages in length and contains haiku, haibun, haiga and tanka.
The meeting was spent in workshop of members’ tanka and haiku.

Next meeting: 6 June, at the Box Factory. Karin Anderson will discuss early forms of Japanese poetry.
