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.

NB: This is a 6-week class meeting Mondays 12:30-2:30pm from September 9th-October 14th. Make-up date: October 21st.
Herbert Hadad is an award-winning essayist and former reporter for The New York Times, New York Post and Boston Globe who retired recently as a press liaison for the U.S. Department of Justice. Hadad is the author of “Finding Immortality: The Raising of One American Family” and is at work on a second non-fiction book. He has conducted his workshop at HVWC for more than 20 years. “The personal essay is the most flexible of all writing forms,” he says. “The practitioner can use it to solve a vexing problem, articulate joy or sorrow, induce laughter, celebrate an insight, bestow wisdom.” Bring a work in progress to the first session.
