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.
The Poetic Experience: How Experimental & Hybrid Work with Kristine Esser Slentz (via Zoom)
June 12 @ 12:30 pm - 4:30 pm$124.00
Let’s experiment with form and medium! We’ll explore the expansive talents of Dawn Lindy Martin, Bernadette Mayer, Theresa Cha, and Jayne Cortez among others in this online (or in-person) workshop! This course will not only introduce you to creators who challenge the concept of worded images but will also give you the opportunity to try your hand at the style(s) yourself. If you find your writing needs to bounce around on the page, jump off the page, or transport/transfer/mutate to another medium, find your home in this class.
NB: This class is capped at 15. This class will be taught on Zoom. Scholarship information will be available in April and will be due on May 15th. Before enrolling in any HVWC class, please refer to our Course Policies and page about our Scholarships Thank you in advance.
