This series of six Zoom workshops runs fortnightly, and is a chance for four poets (who might have completed one or two of our haiku classes formerly) to continue to 'pursue' their haiku writing, with this 'live' workshop.
There will be no prompts for these sessions. You are simply invited to bring two haiku or senryu from your ongoing own 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 about your own and others' 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.
There will be a social and sharing atmosphere balanced with enough time to give everyone's work close individual attention.
