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.

This 4-week, 2-hour workshop is designed for those who would like to kickstart or refine their poetry writing practice. In this class, we will look at poems from established writers such as Michael Longley, Nicole Sealey, Marie Howe, and Ilya Kaminsky, as a means to discuss craft: line, imagery, language, and the consideration of form (both traditional and non-). Participants will be asked to bring in one poem per week to workshop. A list of resources of further readings, prompts, and tips for submitting poems for publication will be also provided. All levels welcome.
NB: This class will be taught on Zoom, 4 Thursdays, 10:30AM-12:30PM ET, July 6-July 27, and will be capped at 10 students. Registrants will receive the Zoom link to the email address they use to register. It will arrive immediately after registration so please check your spam folder if you do not receive it. It will also be sent the day before class as a reminder. Please review the course policies page before registering for any classes. Please email [email protected] with any questions.
