CStudies facilitator interviewed in Gazette
There is a growing poetry movement on the Island, helped in no small part by View Royal’s own Terry Ann Carter, president of Haiku Canada. Despite only living here since 2011, Carter has thrown herself headfirst into the poetry community and been instrumental in gathering creatives together over the last year. - Angela Cowan, Goldstream News Gazette
Terry Ann Carter is a poet, book maker, collage artist, and the President of Haiku Canada. The author of Lighting the Global Lantern: A Teacher’s Guide to Writing Haiku and Related Literary Forms, as well as nine collections of poetry, she is a globe-trotting teacher and activist. Terry Ann joined Continuing Studies last year as a faciliator for three sold out haiku courses that garnered rave reviews. In the article for Goldstream News Gazette Terry Ann shares her approach to haiku, stories of those who have inspired her work, and gratitude for her new community in View Royal.
“There are so many wonderful poets here,” she says. “I think (haiku) is sanity. To write this kind of haiku, you have to slow down. You have to unplug, and look and taste and hear. Haiku is poetry of the moment.”
Join Terry Ann this coming year in Continuing Studies to experience haiku for yourself:
- Haiku and Beyond I: Haiku Poetry in the Twenty First Century - Ten Poets You Should Know
