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.

Writer’s Express Summer Writing Camp

July 12 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

WRITER’S EXPRESS Creative Writing Camp 

Fiction FUN!
We are pleased to partner with Tarrytown Arts Camp to offer writing classes during their July programming.

Youth writing workshops for students entering Grades 5-8 in Sept 2022.
July 11-15 Fiction Fun!
Have you always wanted to write stories? Or written so many stories and don’t know what to do with them? This workshop provides young writers a space to bring forth their creativity, explore new stories, and meet friends with the same passion. We will explore character and plot through a variety of prompts and writing games. Writing prompts will be varied, though some may have a focus upon landscape, nature and island life. ​If weather permits, we may walk over to the park for some natural inspiration.  Each student will finish off the week with a collection of new writing.
July 18-22 Write a One-Act Play
Through generative prompts, students will pinpoint topics and themes to incorporate in their own one-act plays. We will watch and read excerpts from one-act plays and understand the ways in which playwrights think. Focal points will include character motivations, use of props, scene structure, and understanding performance.

​July 25-29 Writing for the Screen
Have you always wondered about the process before the camera? As an introduction to script writing, this workshop will discuss writing for television and movies by use of the three-act structure. Students will learn about TV writers’ rooms, choose their genre, and start writing their very own screenplay!

9am-1pm

$150 residents, $170 non-residents​*for students interested in a full day experience, sign up for Landscape Painting 1:15-3:15 and HWVC will provide a chaperone to walk students to Kingsland in the afternoon
