This introductory course on Zoom focuses on the appreciation, enjoyment, writing, and publishing of haiku, one of the world’s shortest literary art forms. The class will cover the history and evolution of haiku, its structure and aesthetic principles; the best current practices in writing English-language haiku; and where to submit haiku for publication.
You will read and write haiku, share your own poems, engage in peer critiques, and benefit from expert guidance. At the end of the course, you will be encouraged to submit some of your haiku to several edited journals, hoping to have one or more accepted for publication.
