“I took Susan Farese’s Haiku Class in a time when we may be a bit “stale”. Being confined at home has dulled the feelings. I am not a writer or that creative. What Susan’s class did for me was awaken my senses. I was able to tap into some happy and sad moments in my haiku. It was cathartic, enlightening and extremely engaging. I left the class feeling more appreciative of the world and very proud of myself! I will continue to write Haiku as it doesn’t take a lot of time and it is fun! Susan was able to influence me with techniques that will stay with me forever.”

“I really enjoyed your Haiku class and thought it was really informative! I had so much fun creating my first Haikus thanks to you! I did not think I could do it but your expertise and support really helped. What a fun way to spend my Saturday afternoon. Thank you so much. I am going to keep writing Haikus. You have sparked an interest for me! Thank you!”

“I am not a writer and I definitely do not have a way with words, but I thought this Haiku class seemed like a great way to try my hand at writing for myself. Susan Farese made it easy to follow and shared great original imagery and stories to help guide a nervous beginner. You become more aware of all there is to observe in life and how to reflect on that. I found it helped me to be more mindful. It was a bonus to be able to share this experience with others.”
