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.
Master Class on the Poetic Sequence with Andrés Cerpa via Zoom
January 29, 2023 @ 12:30 pm - 2:30 pm$124.00
The form of the poetic sequence offers both authors and readers an expanse of possibility. In this two-hour course we will explore the construction of poetic sequences, delving into the ways that poets build cohesion and sustain momentum in longer works. The course will also provide prompts and exercises to develop your own poetry.
Andrés Cerpa is the author of two books of poetry, the debut collection Bicycle in a Ransacked City: An Elegy (2019) and The Vault (2021), which was longlisted for a National Book Award and celebrated as one of the best poetry books of 2021 by The New York Times. A recipient of fellowships from McDowell and Canto Mundo, his writing has appeared in Ploughshares, Poem-a-Day, The Kenyon Review, The Nation, The BreakBeat Poets Vol 4: LatiNext, The Rumpus, Frontier Poetry, West Branch + elsewhere.
