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.
Danger and Daring: Lyric Essay Workshop with Tyler Mills via Zoom
September 18 @ 12:30 pm - 2:30 pmFree – $99
In this two-hour workshop, you will brainstorm, write, and receive verbal feedback on a brand-new lyric essay in the spirit of danger. How can a single sentence become an essay? How can we draw from the pulse of poetry to write nonfiction narrative? And in what ways can the lyric essay as a genre allow us to fling back the curtain from what haunts a scene and approach it face-on? This generative session is open to essayists and poets of all levels.
