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.
Heavy as a Feather: Harnessing the Power of the Image with Angela Narcisco Torres (via Zoom)
July 30 @ 12:30 pm - 2:30 pm$124.00
Seamus Heaney said that in poems, small things can bear the weight of anything. In this craft class we will explore the power of the image to do heavy lifting in poems, i.e., embodying the complex thoughts and emotions surrounding human experience, whether in one’s interior life or in the world. We will look closely at how some master poets have employed the image and find strategies for our own work.
Please make sure to read our course policies page regarding workshop conduct and logistics before registering for any class at HVWC. Scholarship information will be available for this class in April and applications are due on May 15, 2022.
