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.

Poetry and Pop Culture with Jordan Franklin (via Zoom)

September 17 @ 12:30 pm - 4:30 pm

Do you have a favorite song? Maybe, a movie or tv show that you must never miss when it airs?
Throughout our lives, we have been inundated by pop culture. Without realizing it, these songs, movies and tv shows have helped shape our identities in both big and small ways. In this workshop, we will explore our media fascinations and use them as the catalyst for new poetic works.
This class will be taught via Zoom. Registrants will receive the Zoom link at the time of registration, as well as the day before class. Please email [email protected] with any questions.

Jordan E. Franklin is a Black poet from Brooklyn, New York. A Brooklyn College alum, she received her MFA from Stony Brook Southampton where she served as a Turner Fellow. Her work has appeared in the Southampton Review, Breadcrumbs Magazine, Frontier, [PANK], and elsewhere. She was the winner of the 2017 James Hearst Poetry Prize, and a finalist of the 2019 Nightjar Poetry Contest and the 2019 Furious Flower Poetry Prize. Her debut poetry collection, when the signals come home, was selected by Prageeta Sharma as the winner of the 2020 Gatewood Prize and was published by Switchback Books in March 2021; her first poetry chapbook, boys in the electric age, is forthcoming from by Tolsun Books.
