Haiku Walks

KJ Munro offered outdoor pop-up readings around Dawson City, and offered a ginko (haiku walk) and shared her presentation ‘How to Haiku’.

Writer and poet KJ Munro led a Haiku walk in each of the days of the Yukon Riverside Arts Festival, and was joined by audiences on a promenade around Dawson City in which everyone was invited to create their own spontaneous poems.
