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 five assignments. Level: This is an advanced course, suitable for writers who are already intermediate-level or above in writing three-line haiku. If you are relatively new to haiku, we recommend taking one of our regular haiku courses first, to get the full benefit from this one. In the meantime, our advice is to keep reading haiku! No. of Assignments and Feedback: 5. Participants will be sent the feedback on everyone’s work, as well as their own, in a shared learning experience. Please note this course is Asynchronous (not live). Course reading and assignments are on a private page on the website. Students submit via a form. Collated student assignments and individual tutor feedback are provided via a Word document to the whole group for each assignment. This course runs from 31st January to 9th May.
