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.
Writing Past Grief with Gardner McFall
August 10 @ 12:30 pm - 4:30 pm$124
This one-day Master Class will explore how powerful emotion impels a poem and, in the case of loss,
can lead, through craft, to a poem or even a series of poems. Oscar Wilde said: “Form is everything. It is the secret to life. Find expression for a sorrow and it will become dear to you”. How do we find the right expression in a poem? During this four-hour class, after looking at some examples of elegies, we’ll read and discuss a poem by each class participant. Please bring enough copies of your poem for everyone; the class will be capped at 12.
