We are, we are! Now into our final session with this new course and it's produced some fascinating insights that have proved invaluable!

The Spectrum of Haiku and Senryu is going to be an interesting exploration of how and where and why and when we write, and how both of these genres can impact on each other in a good way:  https://www.callofthepage.org/learning/haiku-courses/the-spectrum-of-haiku-senryu/

We currently have the following haiku courses scheduled:

- The Spectrum of Haiku and Senryu starting Thursday September 6th 2018:

There are some difficult questions in the universe. 

One of them is sometimes "Is this poem a haiku or a senryu?" 

Despite clear intended differences in the form it can sometimes seem impossible to nail down.

The answer perhaps is that there is a spectrum of haiku and senryu. In this course we'll attempt to write intentionally at "both ends of the spectrum", and at points along it, with an awareness of where we are between the genres.

Participants receive introductory materials at the start of the course, and are asked to submit two poems (a haiku and a senryu) in three sessions over two months (total six poems). 

Detailed feedback will be given by the tutor on the poem itself, and on the extent to which it presents as either a haiku or a senryu.
The course operates by email, with participants reading Alan's commentary on each others' poems as well as their own in a group learning process.

Full Cost: £95 (approximately US$121)

Early Bird Rate: £85 (approximately US$109) if booking by Thursday August 30th 2018.

Apart from the cost savings of booking early, please note, our class sizes are small and often fill out a day or so before the early bird rate closes. Thank you!
