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.

“In poetry you have a form looking for a subject and a subject looking for a form,” writes W.H. Auden.In this workshop we’ll try out several twenty-first century poetic forms such as the Bop, the Golden Shovel, and the Fib to see how form itself can influence and inspire what we feel an urgency to say.
NB: This class will be taught on Zoom and will be capped at 15 students. Registrants will receive the Zoom link to the email address they use to register.
