This series of six Zoom workshops runs fortnightly, and is a chance for up to six poets, with experience in three line haiku (who might have completed two or more of our classes formerly, or be at the equivalent level) to venture into, or build on, writing that most concise of poems, the one-line haiku!
There will be no prompts for these sessions, although if you are a beginner at one-line haiku, we will be offering an exercise to get you started for the first session. You are then simply invited to bring along two one-line haiku (which can be very rough drafts). For the subsequent sessions you can also opt to bring rewrites for refinements, and through the course develop confidence in the form and a small body of work.
There will be tutor-led analysis and feedback (with Alan Summers), with the ability to ask questions about your own and others' one-line haiku. The aim is to focus on each participant's work and its development over the sessions. Feedback also includes advice for those wishing to submit their work to literary journals.
We're keeping to a maximum of six people, so that despite the extreme brevity of this form, there is time to give everyone's work very close individual attention, in the spirit of pursuing 'excellency' in the work produced.
Number of Sessions: 6
Class Size: up to 6
