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.
Let’s come together and generate ideas for new ways to work. Most people have something or things that inspire them and trigger their writing. It might be memories, ideas, observations, or an evocative image. However, over time, these sources of inspiration can lose their potency, even limit the kind of work produced and the growth that every writer desires. This generative workshop will shake things up by focusing on the expansion of our fields of inspiration. We will explore five different strategies that ask us to engage with writing in novel ways. We will create new work, and everyone will leave not only with ideas for poems but also prompts and, hopefully, expanded ways to be inspired and approach the generating of work. Note: Prose writers: if you feel you’ve been stuck in a rut, this workshop can help energize you by approaching writing from a different perspective.
