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.
Exploring New Poems with Amy Holman (via Zoom)
January 20 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm$370.00
This class is designed to inspire and support poets who want to return to writing, try new ideas, and refine their voices, whether for their own pleasure or to share with the public through readings and publication. It is open to beginning and emerging poets. The new poems in this class are both those you will write and those we will read from literary journals and poetry books. Amy Holman will offer any interested students suggestions for publication of their new poems at the end of the six week session, although interest in publication is neither the focus nor a requirement for taking this class.
This class series will be taught via Zoom. It will begin on Thursday, January 20 and meet for six consecutive Thursdays, ending on Thursday, February 24. The Zoom link will be emailed at the time of registration (please check spam) and again on the day before the class session begins. Please email [email protected] with any questions.
