Vad du kommer att göra

Do you want to "see" London from a new perspective?
You can do it with a haïku.

What will we do?
We will learn what is a haïku.
We will learn to write haïkus.
We will reflect about London.
We will write those reflections as haïkus.
We will write our favorite haïku with wine or coffee on a special paper.

YOU DON'T NEED TO BE A WRITER, NEITHER A POETRY READER, TO ENJOY THIS EXPERIENCE.

What are I am paying for?
You are paying to develop the ability to see things, life, reality, from a new perspective, in a different way, for the rest of your life.
And, of course, to develop your skill in writing, reading and understanding poetry.

Why haïkus?
Haïku is a very short form of Japanese poetry of three verses.
It reflects the "aware" (deep emotion caused by the perception of nature) felt by the "haijin" (haïku writer) and the "kigo" (word or phrase that symbolizes or implies the season).
The haïku writing invites us to reflect about our surroundings, and helps us to be aware of it.
This is why the haïku is ideal to talk about London, or any other city we live in or visit.

Why Nicolás?
I understand poetry as a tool to see, perceive and understand reality from a different perspective. Poetry doesn't have to bee something complicated or mysterious, or for a small group of people. My aim is to bring poetry, reading and writing, to more people, making it accesible for everyone.
Other things to note
Drinks are NOT included.
We will meet at different wine bars, depending on availability, no more than 15 minutes walking from Tower Bridge. I will let you know before the Experience. But all of them are near from each other.

I'm a poet. I have been writing poetry for two decades.
I have published poetry and short-story books.
I am focused in expanding the posibilities of poetry and publishing, developing strategies and activities to bring poetry to people, and people to poetry.
I belive poetry brings new meanings to life, new ways to perceive reality. In fact, I believe poetry can create new reality.

I have a BA in Fine arts and a MA in Creative writing. I was a street poet for three years (living from that, yes). I self-publish my own books, bags and t-shirts. I taught Creative painting in prison, Creative drawing for children, Creative writing and Self-publishing for adults. Now I teach Spanish, I write, and I paint watercolours. And I keep thinking, "Whats else can I do, to bring up something new?"

It has been a different experience to all. A great experience. Nicolas has a special charm. He was very friendly and welcoming. The workshop was fantastic, I really liked how he explains and his way of working makes you participate at all times. And the idea of ​​writing a Haiku with wine seemed unique to me. Great location. If I go back to London I will repeat. Highly recommended.

Lovely experience, Nicolas created something original and fun. In addition to the personal enjoyment, sharing our poetic menus with the other guests in the group was really nice and generated interesting discussions in a convivial atmosphere. I had a great time and take away poems to enjoy for a very long time to come!
