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.
Master Class in Nonfiction with Diana Goetsch (via Zoom)
February 5, 2023 @ 12:30 pm - 2:30 pm$124.00
This master class will focus on three essential aspects of nonfiction writing (which are seldom talked about in combination), presented clearly and dynamically by a renowned teacher. There will be models, analysis and discussion. There will be Q&A, practices to try on your own, and reading recommendations. Maybe you’re thinking of getting serious about your writing, or you’re serious writer looking for a fresh approach, or a fiction writer or poet interested in attempting nonfiction. This class is perfect for all levels.
NB: This class will be taught on Zoom and capped at 20. Link will be sent to email you use to register at the time of registration and again the day before the class.
