HAIKU - the holistic approach
The Week-end Residential Haiku Course
with Alan Summers

Friday to Sunday April 5th - 7th 2013

A friendly inclusive course to find out what makes a haiku poem.

We’ll look at how our experiences, both external and spiritual, can become haiku, and act as important records of our life.

Alongside learning about haiku, we'll also have a go at a new type of short poetry derived from Chinese puzzle-poems for fun.  Then we'll finish the course with the ever popular linked group verse renga as a memento of our weekend.

This weekend course will be held at Claridge House, a Victorian building with disabled access set in two acres of gardens in the Surrey countryside (England, U.K.).

Cost £190 per person
non residential option £109 for course and meals

Booking: 0845 345 7281 or 01342 832 150

Sounds like a great opportunity!  Wrong continent for me, alas.

Sorry about that Stewart, although I did have someone from Washington State want to come over for one of my week-long residential courses, alas a serious family health issue came up.

I'd love to do some workshops and readings in the USA, although as I know from previous experience it's a big place. :-)

Hi Stewart,

That's the problem with a big landmass like the Americas, with even the USA being a large country, as a lot of Americans would love me to come over, but which area or city is close to anyone?

But watch this space as I'd like to do a mini-tour sometime. :-)

I think the best you can do in the US is pick somewhere near a major airport, so that the fares to attend might be marginally more affordable.  (My own location close to LAX clearly has no bearing on these considerations...  ;) )

Alternately, somewhere that it's cheap to get around and stay in, so the savings are on that side instead.

Commencing space-watching.
