Ten members of the Bindii group attended a tanka workshop led by Dawn Colsey and Lynette Arden at the Box Factory, 59 Regent St South, Adelaide.
Lee Bentley, as chair of the meeting, welcomed the presenters at 12.30.
Some written material had been distributed to members by email prior the meeting and links to further articles are displayed on Bindii Facebook page
Several members brought in a range of journals and books containing tanka, so all could share a range of published work.
The workshop started with some thoughts on tanka styles discussed by Dawn and Lynette, with examples from both Japanese and English language writers.
Members were then invited to select a favourite tanka, from the journals that had been distributed, and write it on the whiteboard for discussion.
