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

Award-winning California poet, Brynn Saito, will discuss the zuihitsu, a form of prose-poetry writing that emerged 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 surprising, 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.
