Sandy Johnson, Author & Retired Teacher Anyone can be a poet! Start your poetry journey by learning the process of writing the Japanese style poem of Haiku. Bring along a photo of a special person, place or object as inspiration as you create your Haiku. Sandy will share examples of her writing as well as Haikus of former students as she reviews writing terms and guides you in the steps to creating your own Haiku. When your poem is complete, you’ll craft it into a decorative card. Included with the class registration is a copy of Sandy’s book, Wisconsin’s Rock Island – Images in Paintings and Verse with a CD of her song “Rock Island” performed by folksinger and tall ships’ captain Tom Kastle of Madison, WI.
