Wow, the haibun course sold out fast!  Karen has now put up the next one, starting in January 2018:
https://www.callofthepage.org/learning/online-courses/haibun-courses/



Spaces still available for haiku and tanka, though senryu is nearly booked up.

Hi Rick,  :)

The second link just takes you to the overview of what courses we are offering:
https://www.callofthepage.org/learning/online-courses/

You'll see straight under online courses, four genres to click and choose.

Haibun is sold out, but we are doing another one in January. The other courses have either one or two spaces left.

e.g.

haiku:
https://www.callofthepage.org/learning/online-courses/haiku-courses/

But we will run these courses again in the new year.

I've updated the second link as all our current courses are now available. Many thanks for the prompt.

You can also email us to be on the list for our next news:
admin@callofthepage.org

warmest regards,

Alan

Great!

Although haibun is fully booked this year, and already someone has paid to be on next year's course, we do have two spaces left on haiku, one on senryu...

But we are as excited about this year, and next year, as course participants are really making a difference.

e.g.

At the Vancouver Cherry Blossom competition, for instance, we have ten participants in the results!

It's nigh on impossible, after hundreds of thousand of haikai verses over centuries, there is something still fresh to say.

warm regards,
Alan

That's very cool Alan that you have so many student entrants in the VCBC. And yes, cherry blossoms must be a tough subject by now. Here in the yard we have two apple trees, and this year planted pear and plum. We plan on cherry next spring. I hope to get a chance to see cherry blossoms up close and personal in the not too distant future. An opportunity I haven't had since taking up writing little poems. :-)

Regarding haibun we are lining up another course:
https://www.callofthepage.org/learning/haibun-courses/

And have a number of courses announced across the genres:
https://www.callofthepage.org/learning/

Also one to one Skype calls are getting more popular. A lot of ground can be covered quickly, and the combination of in-depth analysis plus humour is incredibly effective.

warm regards,
Alan
