Fóram a bheidh sa cheardlann seo ina ndéanfar plé ar fhilíocht na Gaeilge san 21ú Aois. Spreagadh - giniúint shíol na filíochta san aigne. Plandáil - conas é a chur ar phár. Bláthú - saibhriú dáin, é a chur in eagar. Is í Ailbhe Ní Ghearbhuigh a bheidh mar áisitheoir ar an gceardlann. Déanfar cíoradh cáiréiseach ar dhánta na rannpháirtithe. Beir leat dán(ta) ar mian leat barr feabhais a chur orthu. Fáilte roimh chách.

Gabriel Rosenstock Haiku Workshop at the Munster Literature CentreHaiku Master Class


To be placed on a waiting list, email info(AT)munsterlit(DOT)ie.



A ginko or compositional stroll usually precedes Rosenstock’s haiku workshops.


Participants may bring along a maximum of 10 nature-centred haiku to be workshopped, 5-7-5 style or free form.

Gabriel Rosenstock is a member of several international haiku associations and is an associate founder of the Haiku Foundation. He is a frequent contributor to World Haiku Review. He has taught haiku at the Schüle für Dictung (Poetry Academy) in Vienna. Cambridge Scholars Publishing brought out two major works by him on haiku as a way of life, Haiku Enlightenment and Haiku, the Gentle Art of Disappearing. These are available from Amazon. Participants in the workshop are expected to have read these books. (complimentary electronic copies will be made available to participants in advance). Rosenstock hopes that participants will have prepared questions, comments, queries about the contents of these two books.
Zen-haiku Master James W. Hackett says of these books: ‘With edifying purpose, the author subtly introduces examples of haiku’s apocalyptic potential of transfiguration, known in haiku and Zen as ‘spiritual interpenetration’ and, by so doing, offers the reader an opportunity to witness the entwining of the Universal Spirit with Its Self.’

Maximum places 8
Cost: €30 each





To confirm whether or not a place remains for the workshop of your choice please email info(AT)munsterlit(DOT)ie. Workshops typically fill very quickly, and as such a place will only be held once payment is made in advance. The Munster Literature Centre regrets that refunds for any reason will not be possible for the Haiku workshop only, due to the complimentary materials to the value of €80 which will be sent to participants. Cheques/Money Orders should be made payable to the Munster Literature Centre. Cash may be handed in at the Munster Literature Centre. However it is advisable to ring first to check that a member of staff is available (+21 431 2955). We cannot accept credit card or laser payments.
