The August Haiku Northwest meeting took place on Thursday, August 23, 2018 at 7:00 p.m. at the Kirkland Library with six people in attendance: Ida Freilinger, Dianne Garcia, Connie Hutchison, Tanya McDonald, Angela Terry, and Michael Dylan Welch. Angie coordinated the meeting, which included announcements about new publications and an update on plans for our annual Seabeck Haiku Getaway and our Seabeck Haiku Walk. She then led the group in a haiku-focused surrealist Exquisite Corpse exercise, using the three-line format of writing: 1) a person or thing, 2) a place or time, and 3) a resolution. Each person wrote a line, folded it over and passed it along to the person sitting next to him or her. Some interesting haiku emerged, as well as some that were just plain bad. After a break, the group then shared haiku they had brought for the critique portion of the meeting.
