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.

Do you love reading adventure books with fantastical settings and magical elements? Have you ever wanted to write a story set in a place you’ve never been? Through this workshop, students will understand the layout of the land within their stories, no matter what genre.

We will offer this morning session for 4 days February 21-24.
Students are encouraged to bring a lunch and register for the afternoon session of Fiction Fun too! (A $25 refund will be issued back to purchasers of both sessions.)

This session will take place in person at HVWC. Our historic station house is located in Philipse Manor / Sleepy Hollow, NY.
