In 2017 with the help of our pioneering students we successfully ran our first course dedicated to senryu, and this specialist class is only the second time we are running it. How is a three-line senryu poem different to a three-line haiku poem, in content, style and language? Submitting two draft senryu three times over two months, we'll explore these questions, but also try to find our own "voice" with our senryu.
Assignments with prompts are posted privately online, and feedback is sent by group email. Participants read Alan's feedback on each other's poems as well as on their own senryu, in a shared learning process.
Cost: £95 (approximately US$122)
Early Bird Cost: £88 (approximately US$113) if booking by Tuesday 21st January 2020.
