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.
Publishing, Editing, Revision, Second-guessing, Peace of Mind, Doubt, Etc with Sally Ball
March 14 @ 12:30 pm - 4:30 pm$124
A class for poets about what happens next
We’ll spend part of our time taking stock of the publishing process—what real people who screen for presses say about what they look for, what they set aside, the strategies they use to categorize and rank manuscripts—and also the conditions under which they often work. This conversation can be both exciting and sobering. We’ll move on from there to think about revision and the cycles of engagement poems pass through: how do you return to your own work? Who helps you? How can re-entry be more generative, open, and developmental, and thus less tinkery? Participants should bring two poems: one they feel is ‘finished,’ and one that has been stubborn, that they are struggling with.
This class is caped at 15. Please register ASAP to secure your spot.
