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.

What the world needs now is more love. (Doesn’t it always?) In this generative and craft workshop, we’ll explore all kind of love: familial, romantic, passionate, platonic—and discuss how other poets have tendered their thoughts and sentiments, with an eye to what we can learn from them to inspire our own work.Be ready to write, and maybe to create a poem for a special someone in time for Valentine’s Day. Whether you’re drowning in love or searching for it, come and share your memories and observations about this essential human emotion.
