The regular Bindii bi-monthly program of meetings for members will continue in 2018.

2. 7 April: Meeting at the Box Factory: With a focus on 'animal' haiku, tanka, haibun etc. etc.
3. 2 June: Renga/renku: Lee Bentley
4. 4 August: Prompts for writing: Maeve Archibald
The program for the last two meetings: 6 October and 1 December will be decided at a later date.
Some of our favoured meeting activities include:
presentations about specific genres of Japanese poetry: from time to time we hold workshops dealing with haiku, tanka, haibun, haiga, rengay and renku.
workshop of members' work.
kukai: using a method of making the work anonymous by copying we then each share our favourite poems of those presented.
ginko: members walk in a selected venue (sometimes in a garden, or just take a walk in the streets during the meeting) to either take notes and photos or drawings which will lead to the composition of poetry.
