Greenwood Lake Public Library

Greenwood Lake Public Library presents a Japanese Poetry Workshop with poet/authors James P. Wagner and Nick Hale. In honor of poetry month, the Greenwood Lake Public Library is very pleased to welcome poet and authors James P. Wagner and Nick Hale as they share their knowledge and educate participants on the history of Japanese poetry. There will be particular focus on Renga, which is a collaborative Japanese poetry form, historically used in the social class of the aristocrats who would correspond with each other through letters that could go through hundreds of verses. A Renga, in the strictest sense, requires 3 poets or more, and is made up of alternating Tanka verse.
