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.
Looking for an out-of-the-box way to expand your characters and character-building skills? Dungeons & Dragons is a collective storytelling game played amongst friends with dice telling the players what they can and can’t do. This 6week class series aims to take the structure of Dungeons & Dragons and the act of playing the game itself to enable students to conduct a living, ever-deepening study of character and storytelling structures as characters encounter a collective story in real time. Each student will be responsible for producing 10-20 pages of material over the course of six weeks. Each student will be provided with supplementary videos and text to further the study of character.
This course will take place on six consecutive Fridays beginning on September 16 via Zoom. The Zoom link will be shared at the time of registration and again the day before the series begins. Please write to [email protected] with any questions.
No prior experience necessary. All are welcome.
