Updates from Kimball Electronics’ Take a Haiku Hike Challenge

I was happy to be a guest speaker and a judge for Kimball Electronics’ Take a Haiku Hike Challenge. Here are the winners with Communications Director Scott Saalman’s announcement. Thank you, Scott and all the participants, for bringing about such an amazing event where new talents were discovered. I hope to see you at our online haiku workshops in the summer (open to all). Your contributions will be considered for inclusion in our eBook in Oct. —Anna Yin

I conduct Poetry Alive workshops not only to teach poetry, but also to discover life lessons. On Feb 2, at Agincourt Collegiate, students and I engaged in the exercises: “Who am I?” and “The Trouble with…”. I want to thank Mr. Thomas and his Grade 11 and 12 students for joining with me in these workshops and sharing what they wrote.

On Feb 24, I will be a Judge for Poem/Speech Competition at St. Jude’s Academy. On March 8, I will mentor at ConnectHer event. Feel free to join us.

On Feb 26, Poetry Alive workshop for Leadership Club at CPAC, then on March 3/9, for Dolphin Sr. Public School
