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.

Write, Write, Write!: A Fiction Workshop for Teens (via Zoom)
May 9 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm$130 – $150
A select number of scholarships for local students are available for this workshop. Please email [email protected] if you are interested in applying. Please include your student’s name, age, home town, and contact information.
Do you love to write fiction? Would you like to generate new work week after week? Would it be helpful to get feedback from other teens who love and understand writing just as much as you?
In this five-week workshop, we’ll use prompts to create new stories, experiment with different forms, and discuss the writing process. Writers will receive positive feedback so they can take what they produce in class and confidently improve their writing. In our last workshop, writers will have the opportunity to bring an edited piece they began in class to receive additional comments.
This workshop will be taught via Zoom. The Zoom link will be emailed at the time of registration. (Please check spam / promotions filters.) Please email [email protected] with any questions.
