Haiku Workshop

October 7, 2023 @ 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm

Haiku Example

Frank Higgins

By looking at models of both classic and contemporary haiku, we’ll try to find ways to put those qualities into our own writing.

Frank Higgins is the author of several plays, including Black Pearl Sings! which became one of the most professionally produced plays in America, and The Sweet By ‘n’ By, the latter produced with Blythe Danner and Gwyneth Paltrow. His work has been seen in New York and across the country at the Williamstown Theater Festival, the Old Globe Theatre, Ford’s Theater in Washington DC, Northlight Theatre in Chicago, Kansas City Repertory Theater, Virginia Stage Company, the Barter Theater, and other places.
His plays have been published by Dramatists Play Service, Samuel French, Dramatic Publishing Company, and Pioneer Drama Service. His one act play The True Death of Socrates is included in the Best American Short Plays series. Scenes from his play Gunplay: A Play About America were read on Capitol Hill prior to Congress passing the Brady Bill. He has also written plays for young audiences, including Anansi the Spider and The Middle Passage, and The Country of the Blind. He has also published five books of poetry and haiku, and is a member of the Dramatists Guild, and the Haiku Society of America.
