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.

How long have you been saying you want to write a book? Let 2021 be the year you do it! Whether you have a partial draft, or just an idea and the desire to write, this class can help you put that “book in your head” onto the page. We will craft outlines and discuss structure, then address the mechanics of fiction during in-depth, sensitive critiques of your work. Generative exercises will challenge you to experiment with new voices and forms, and our community of writers will help you stick to your goals. With steady effort, you can finish that first draft by this time next year.

Jonathan Vatner is the author of the 2019 novel Carnegie Hill, praised by People magazine, Town & Country, and the New York Post. He is an award-winning journalist who has written for The New York TimesO, The Oprah Magazine, and Poets & Writers, and is the managing editor of Hue, the magazine of the Fashion Institute of Technology. He holds an MFA in creative writing from Sarah Lawrence College and a BA in cognitive neuroscience from Harvard University, and he teaches fiction writing at New York University. His second novel, The Bridesmaids Union, is forthcoming from St. Martin’s Press in June 2022. He lives in Yonkers, NY, with his husband and cats.
