Level: Participants should have some existing experience of writing haiku, but may be beginners, "improvers", or advanced, at haibun.
Group Size: up to 5 FULLY BOOKED
In this haibun course, over just two sessions, you will be invited to write a double-assignment of two haibun each time (of an average 300 words each), resulting in four new haibun over the course. Optional prompts and approaches to your haibun will be suggested each time. Substantial written feedback (up to six hours per student) is given by former haibun editor Alan Summers, who's recently been Pushcart Prize nominated for his haibun.
Q: We've been asked by a couple of people whether they can write shorter haibun than 300 words on this course. Absolutely! Shorter haibun, including very short ones, are fine, and all writers will receive an equal amount of overall feedback and attention, regardless of the length of their four individual pieces.
As with most of our online courses, participants will be sent the feedback on all participants' work, as well as their own, in a shared learning experience.
If you prefer to write "tanka prose" in place of haibun, please let us know at the time of booking so that we can ensure prompts are suitable for both tanka prose and haibun, as there are nuances between the forms!
Cost: £180.00 (approximately US$225).
