This course provides a stepping point between Introducing... Haiku and the Intermediate Haiku classes, but is also a good reboot for anyone wanting to remind themselves to use all of the senses over their haiku writing. The well-eyed are so often drawn to the visual. Haiku is a craft of observation, but we also observe through our ears, noses, and through touching and tasting.
Over five sessions, one of each of the five senses will dominate the assignment briefings. There will be a written exercise each time exploring the "sense of the session" and then using your exercise observation notes as a starting point, you'll be invited to submit two haiku. There'll be written feedback on your exercise, and on your haiku, in a joint document so that classmates benefit from a shared learning experience.
Cost: £180 (approximately US$231)

What our students have said about this course....
I've truly enjoyed this course! I think
I see, hear, smell and taste differently now, thinking about these senses differently. And I feel my haiku writing has improved.
