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.

Workshops – This category encompasses all one-day and multi-week classes, whether in person or via Zoom.

Readings – Our readings are in many different genres and take place in person, on Zoom, or both!

HVWC Recurring Events – This category encompasses such regular favorites as Open Mic, Open Write, and Submission Sunday.

Special Events – These other creative experiences are sure to interest our creative community!
