Level: This is an advanced course, suitable for writers who are already intermediate-level or above in writing three-line haiku. If you are relatively new to haiku, we recommend taking one of our regular haiku courses first, to get the full benefit from this one. In the meantime, our advice is to keep reading haiku!

Even more minimalist than haiku, the "monoku" is a poem in one short line. They’ve become increasingly popular and more widely published in journals and anthologies.
So if a single short line is the shape of monoku, what is the substance of this tiny haiku derivative?
This course will encourage you to consider what a monoku is, for yourself as a writer, and will give deep feedback on the poems you write over three assignments.
The tutor is award-winning and widely published monoku writer, Alan Summers. At the end of the course, you will have ten monoku written over five submissions, with lots of notes for further ideas for monoku-writing.
As with most of our online courses, participants will be sent the feedback on everyone’s work, as well as their own, in a shared learning experience.
Cost: £155 (approximately US$201)
