A 'ginko' is a Japanese word for a walk in a natural environment in which one writes poetry.  Join poet, editor and educator Matt Hetherington as he takes you on a stroll around Bribie Island, showing you how observing details and writing the short-form poetry called ‘haiku’ can improve your craft.  Whatever genre you write in, you will gain insight into the power of noticing what is most closely around you, and how the smallest things are often the most telling.

Matt Hetherington has been writing poetry and haiku for over 25 years, and has been an editor and teacher of creative writing and editor for over a decade.  He has published three collections of poetry, and his work has been widely anthologised.  He was co-editor of the Australian section of the first World Haiku Anthology, and has worked for the Australian Haiku Society for the last 15 years.
