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.

A Celebration of the Life and Poetry of Anya Krugovoy Silver
August 4 @ 4:00 pm - 5:45 pm$10
Join us for a reading of Anya Krugovoy Silver’s poetry by family, friends, and fellow poets. Anya Krugovoy Silver published four poetry collections, most recently Second Bloom (Cascade Books, 2017), and her poems appeared in dozens of publications, including The Southern Poetry Review, Anglican Theological Review, New Ohio Review, Witness, and Bellevue Literary Magazine. She was awarded the Georgia Author of the Year for Poetry in 2015, was named a Guggenheim Fellow in 2018, and given the Posthumous Lifetime Achievement award for her poetry by the Georgia Writers Association. In her obituary appearing in The New York Times on August 10, 2018, Richard Sandomir wrote that Anya “wrote lyrical verse that gave readers an exquisite, intimate and sometimes angry account of her illness,” exploring “religion, love, womanhood, spirituality, the body, and other subjects.” “I have a tremendous amount of joy in my life, and my joy exists with pain,” she told an interviewer from Georgia Public Radio, “All of life is woven together, and separating the strands is impossible.”
