Courses in Autumn 2023

Introducing...Haiku.  This popular beginner's course started again on 5th September 2023.


Our longer Intermediate Haiku course, Intermediate Haiku (Longer), started again on 7th September 2023. We've run this four-part course many times! The course is suitable for those with some experience of creative writing and/or haiku. 


One of our newest courses started its third run on 31 August 2023. Haiku Across The Senses is designed as a stepping stone between Introducing and Intermediate Haiku but can also be used as a refresher on using all the senses in your haiku writing. 


COURSE NOW FULL - Due to continuing popular demand our advanced course for 'monoku', One-Line Haiku, started for a third time this year on 29th August 2023. Suitable for writers who are already intermediate-level or above in writing three-line haiku. Please note this course is full and booking is closed. If you would like to go on the waiting list for next time, please email Alison at the address below.


If you would like to go on the waiting list for future dates of any of our courses, please email Alison at courses@callofthepage.org.
