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.

Unearthing the Essay: Digging deep and owning your narrative with Ko Im

August 9, 2020 @ 12:30 pm - 4:30 pm

Free – $124

The essay is a powerful tool of understanding oneself and sharing larger insights. This prompt-driven workshop will explore—and practice—the art of honest, conversational writing. Open to all those interested in personal essays and opinion pieces that highlight the human experience and show greater learnings about the lives we live.

NB: This class will be held on Zoom. Login instructions will arrive via email as soon as you register to whatever email address you use to register. Please check your spam or promotions folder and save the zoom link.

There are two Altman Persons of Color Scholarship available for each one-day class on a first come, first served basis. Please let the Center know right away if your plans change and you can no longer attend the class so we can give the spot to another student of color. Thank you.

Ko Im is an award-winning storyteller and editor (Ny Yoga + Life, Medium’s The Salve). Ko’s essays have appeared on Nylon and Curbed. She wrote and narrated an e-memoir for millenials: Broke, not Broken. The cross-disciplinary artist and Craigardan resident performed and produced a poetry-laden screenplay at the Ace Hotel in New York last summer. She has also reported for CBS News, Cosmopolitan and the Washington Post. Ko earned her MS in journalism at Columbia University.
