Survey Says . . . The Renku Sessions
Every September the Board of Directors and Associates of The Haiku Foundation are sent a survey. Their responses help to guide our growth and direction. We’d like to broaden our input, and so we’ll be asking you to respond to a series of questions, one per week, over the next half-year. Your replies will be weighed in our assessment of our performance.
Today’s question: The Renku Sessions
The Renku Sessions is one of our most popular interactive projects. A guest sabaki (group leader) guides willing participants through one of a variety of renku formats, with a new link added each week, and commentary on why the new choice was made. To date we have completed 3 renku, and are in the midst of our fourth. The resulting collaborative poem end with a summary at its conclusion, and is archived on the THF website. All experience levels are encouraged to participate, and more than 50 participants per renku is the norm. The Renku Sessions is overseen by John Stevenson.
