Level: Participants should have some existing experience of writing haiku, but may be beginners, "improvers", or advanced, at haibun.
Group Size: up to 5
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 200 words each), resulting in four new haibun (or if you prefer, tanka prose, or a combination of these two forms) over the course. Optional prompts and approaches will be suggested for each assignmet. Detailed written feedback is given by former haibun editor and Pushcart Prize-nominated haibun writer Alan Summers.
We first ran a version of this course in 2019, although here in 2020 we have responded to students wanting to concentrate on shorter word-count haibun (and we've been able to reduce the price a little accordingly). This course, with its double assignments over five weeks, is designed to help output your writing more intensively than our usual courses.
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.
Cost: £160.00 (approximately US$208).
Early Bird Rate: £155.00 (approximately US$201) if booking by Monday 12th October 2020.
