This haiku workshop, named for the peregrine falcons that live in downtown Cincinnati, and nest at the Mercantile Library–is open to all aspiring poets.

The workshop begins with a review and discussion of an anthology of classic haiku, revealing that day’s theme. The last part of the session is spent writing haiku prompted by the theme of the day.

Led by Patti Niehoff, who has spent four decades writing, studying, and working on haiku.

Forget 5-7-5, this group is for anyone interested in focusing on those tiny moments of illumination, honing their craft, or just curious about the art form.

This event is hybrid. Free and open to the public. The in-person session includes lunch. To register or for more information, email Kara Willis:
