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.

Writing a Pantoum with Lauren Camp via Zoom

January 28, 2023 @ 12:30 pm - 4:30 pm

$124.00

The ancient pantoum is the ideal form for writing about the past. With a little direction, even uncertain writers are eased into shaping their crystalline memories, and more experienced writers will have the chance to delve into subjects that might not have opened up for them before.

In this workshop, Lauren will offer brief historical background on the form, then lead students in an idea-generating exercise that will produce the raw material for each student’s unique pantoum. She will also provide tips for how to craft a good pantoum line—a line that can shift in meaning over the course of the poem.

Students will begin to see the juxtaposition and reverberation of sound and themes. Excitement builds quickly as students follow the form through to its ending. We may also look at other structures that can widen a poet’s perspective.

Open to all levels.

Lauren Camp is the author of five books, most recently Took House (Tupelo Press). Honors include the Dorset Prize and finalist citations for the Arab American Book Award, Housatonic Book Award, and New Mexico-Arizona Book Award. Her poems have appeared in Kenyon Review, Prairie Schooner, Witness, Poet Lore, Beloit Poetry Journal and The Los Angeles Review, and her work has been translated into Mandarin, Turkish, Spanish, Serbian and Arabic. She teaches creative expression to people of all ages, working with The Georgia O’Keeffe Museum, Poetry Out Loud, and leading community workshops in Santa Fe, New Mexico, where she lives. www.laurencamp.com
