Our first attempt at creating an indoor installation was a rousing...

Guerilla Haiku Goes to Cleveland!

The Cleveland Public Theater (CPT) is one of those regional theaters that fully embrace their commitment to serving the needs of their community.  And the Gordon Square Arts District is the multi-organization consortium (including CPT) that  is revitalizing the Detroit-Shoreway  neighborhood of Cleveland. When Executive Artistic Director, Raymond Brobgan, contacted Guerilla Haiku in February to invite us to their yearly Party in Gordon Square to engage their Party-goers in Haiku-ing, I jumped at the chance.  What better effort to support and celebrate but the coming together of a...

GHM: BeHive After School in Austin

Thanks to the efforts of Alan De Anda, Guerilla Haiku made its way on December 5th, 2012 to Salinas Ave to haiku with a group of 2nd-4th graders at the BeHive Afterschool Program in the Marshall Apartments.

As are the photos of this band of newly-converted Agents of Haiku. To find out more about...

GHM: Arlington Public Library Teen Zone

Arlington Library is doing great things with teen programming across the city, and the Teen Zone in Northeast Arlington has created a safe, and supportive environment for their after school youth mainly due to their incredible leader, Veronica, and the dedicated presence of local mom, Maria. When Veronica invited Guerilla Haiku in to do some Haikuing around the library after school, I could not say no, despite the darkening skies. (Even in Texas the night descends sooner in Winter). The result of our 2 hours at the Library was an initially hesitant group of teens writing, drawing and creating...
