Welcome to the Call of the Page website. We run international online courses, workshops and events with an emphasis on the Japanese forms haiku, senryu, tanka and haibun. We hope you enjoy exploring the tabs above. 



The first writers on Writing Through It , Call of the Page's response project to the Coronavirus pandemic, have now completed the run of assignments, with others beginning or half-way through. 


The course is run on a rolling basis, can be started at any time, and can be booked  here. We then hope to run another batch in early 2021, ending in the Spring when we all hope very much that writers on the series will be able to tell their stories of improving times in the world.


We're finding this a hugely socially useful project, with some powerful, moving, and insightful writing being created. There is a real sense of these short pieces being testimonies of our times. If you would like to take part but are unable to because of finances, please contact us about the waiting list for a subsidised or outreach place. 




Our courses for Autumn/Fall have now all started, but we will be announcing courses and online workshops for the New Year shortly. However, the courses you see from the autumn schedule on this website are regulars that we return to, so you may find it helpful to look at these descriptions in the meantime. Thank you so much for your interest.




Alan Summers continues to be available for individual one to one students via email and/or video call. Please contact us for further info, but in the meantime, you can see prices and a basic description of how the one to one sessions operate on our 'special payments' booking page here
