This year, celebrate National Poetry Month by spending an afternoon at Bloedel Reserve, walking with classic poets as your companions.

Following in the footsteps of the Japanese haiku and English Romantic poets, you’ll put on walking shoes and pick up pens, reading poems posted for inspiration as you write your way around the garden. You'll conclude your walk at the Japanese Guest House where you'll share poems/sketches and contribute lines for a collaborative Japanese renga or linked verse. You can write poetry or you can write prose.

Please wear walking shoes and dress for rain or shine. 

Meet at 1 pm at the entry gate for Bloedel Reserve (7571 NE Dolphin Dr, Bainbridge Island, WA 98110)

Class cost includes admission to Bloedel Reserve.
