 2024 Course Bookings Now Open


Thank you for your support. 

Courses now open for booking:

We are delighted to be running our Haiku - Across the Senses course again for those with some haiku experience and as a reboot for experienced haiku writers. It will start on 22nd August 2024. For more information and booking go to:  Haiku Across The Senses. Only 1 place left. 


Our popular Introducing...Haiku course will be starting again on 3rd September 2024. Suitable for those completely new to creative writing, new to haiku but with experience of creative writing, and even for those experienced haiku writers who would like to refresh their practice. For more information and booking go to: Introducing Haiku.


And finally we will be running our Senryu course again starting on 10th September 2024. This last ran two years ago so if you are interested in learning about the lesser known sister form to haiku, now's your chance! It is suitable for beginner and improver Senryu writers, and you don't need to have written haiku.  For more information and booking go to: Senryu. Now Fully Booked.
