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.
Is Grief a Bridge: Writing Lyrical Prose with Rosebud Ben-Oni via Zoom
March 27 @ 12:30 pm - 4:30 pmFree – $124
How is Grief a period of prolonged waiting, consuming you, more verb than noun? How can you make Grief a bridge to another side, exploring where you are in it, rather than just trying to write yourself out of it? In this workshop we will excavate, process and draw out unprocessed experiences, memories and the emotions tied within then in order to, according to author Naja Marie Aidt, “create meaning from the meaningless of Grief.” We will also read work from contemporary authors like Gabby Bellot, Matthew Salesses and Carmen Maria Machado.
This class will be held on Zoom. Login instructions will arrive via email as soon as you register to whatever email address you use to register. Please check your spam or promotions folder and save the zoom link. Please email [email protected] with any questions.
Please note: The Altman Persons of Color Scholarships are free and given on a first come, first served basis. Please notify us right away if your plans change and you cannot attend the class. We will then reopen the slot so another student may register. Thank you in advance for this consideration. NB: Please do not register for more than one scholarship class per month. Thank you.
