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.

CANCELLED — Open Mic
March 29 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm$5
Out of an abundance of caution – in light of the public health concern over Coronavirus in our region – we have decided to postpone all remaining events at the Hudson Valley Writers Center for the duration of March. Please reach out with any questions to [email protected], and stay tuned for further updates.
Our Open Mic Nights are held from 7:30-9:30 pm on the 3rd Friday of each month. Doors open at 7 pm for event starting at 7:30. Due to popular demand to participate, we’ve had to limit the amount of readers to 20.
NEW: We’re adjusting the policy to balance the demand at the door and online: There are now 10 performer slots up for sale online, placing you on the list in order of your purchase. The other 10+ slots (exact amount at discretion of host) available on a first-come basis at the door. Due to confusion, we will no longer be selling audience-only slots online. All general admission available at the door for $5 suggested donation. There is no guarantee we can accommodate everyone who wants to participate, but we do hope you’ll enjoy the show no matter what.
All genres welcome — fiction, non-fiction, poetry, music, comedy, storytelling, other. Open Mic will give you an opportunity to share your talents in a nurturing, comfortable space with some great people. Bill Buschel is your host.
