WELCOME TO THE HVWC CALENDAR: home of all our upcoming readings, events and workshops. You can view by list or calendar (see right menu to choose). Click the colored tabs below to show only specific options. Our workshops run as multi-session series or one-day “intensives.” Note, we list the multi-session courses on the first day they meet only. The full dates of the session are described in the course descriptions. You would need to scroll back to the start date if you needed to enroll for something already underway. But do let us know if you want to join something in midstream since we need the blessing of the instructor. Questions? Email us.

Craft Class on Allusion with Rachel Hadas via Zoom

February 27 @ 12:30 pm - 2:30 pm


ALLUSION: poetry as conversation. The late poet Rachel Wetzsteon, author of the entry on Allusion in the Princeton Encyclopedia of Poetry and Poetics, observes that allusion in poetry mitigates our loneliness. How does allusion work to make poetry more expansive yet intimate, inclusive and informative all at once? We’ll look at a few examples and also consider participants’ work with allusions.

NB: This is a one-day Master Class taught on Zoom and capped at 17 students.

If you register for this class on Feb 25-the morning of Feb 27th, please email [email protected] for the reading packet that you should print out or have accessible on your computer during the class to refer to while Rachel is speaking. The link will be sent to you immediately after you register to the email you use to enroll. Check your spam folder. It will also be resent right before the class.
