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.
Plate Tectonics: Building Richer Poems through Shifts and Layers with Lauren Camp via Zoom
January 30, 2022 @ 12:30 pm - 2:30 pm$124
Sometimes a poem you’ve been working on just isn’t getting where you want it to go. You might need a seismic shift, or you might simply need to plant a new seed in what you thought was hardened ground. A poem can often be made deeper and more resonant with time and a few techniques. This two-hour craft class will help you integrate and overlap approaches that will help the poem evolve. Come prepared to work (or really play!) with new ideas and directions. Open to writers at all levels.
Class will be held via Zoom and is limited to 12 students. Scholarship information will be released in November 2021.
Lauren Camp is the author of five books, most recently Took House (Tupelo Press).
