Guest Speaker: Brynn Saito – Following the Brush: Japanese Poetic Forms, Then & Now

Award-winning California poet, Brynn Saito, will discuss the zuihitsu, a form prose poetry that emaerged during Japan's 11th century.  Closely translated as "following the brush," zuihitsu collects observations, notes, personal feelings and quotes in a seemingly random and associative manner, leading to suprising, poignant poetic expressions.  Saito will discuss how this form- and how Japanese culture,more generally informs her work.  She will close with a short poetry reading, book signing, and Q&A.
