To find out more about senryu, take a look at our senryu page.
An interest in haiku is bound to expose you to its sister form, senryū. The two forms overlap, but here we follow prompts that allow us to grasp the essence of senryū, with its human behaviour focus, more directly.
Start Date: Monday 14th February 2022
End Date: Monday 11th April 2022
Format: Asynchronous. Participants work on written assignments in their own time.
Level: Beginners and improvers of senryu. Most people will come with at least some experience of writing haiku, although there is no reason not to start with senryu first!
Number of Assignments: 3
Group Size: up to 5
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 participants read Alan's feedback on each other's poems as well as on their own senryu, in a shared learning process.
