An online advanced course for writers who are already familiar in writing three-line haiku but want to learn about the single line haiku.
Even more minimalist than haiku, the "monoku" is a poem in one short line. They’ve become increasingly popular and more widely published in journals and anthologies. So if a single short line is the shape of monoku, what is the substance of this tiny haiku derivative?
This course will encourage you to consider what a monoku is, for yourself as a writer, and will give deep feedback on the poems you write over three assignments.
The tutor is award-winning and widely published monoku writer Alan Summers. At the end of the course, you will have ten monoku written over five submissions, with lots of notes for further ideas for monoku-writing.
Participants will be sent the feedback on everyone’s work, as well as their own, in a shared learning experience.
