This series of six Zoom workshops runs fortnightly from Monday 3rd May, and is a chance for four poets, who have probably already been widely published, to concentrate uncompromisingly on their next work. It's a bit hardcore.


There will be no prompts for these workshops. You are simply invited to bring two haiku or senryu from your ongoing work to the first session. For the subsequent sessions you can also opt to bring rewrites for refinements.


There will be tutor-led analysis and feedback (with Alan Summers), with the ability to ask questions and make comments about your own and others' advanced haiku. The aim is to give an intensive focus on each participant's work and its development over the sessions. Feedback also includes advice for participants who wish to submit their work to literary journals.


If you wish to be stretched, and challenged, in the company of like-minded haiku writers, this is the course for you!
