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.
Intuitive Recollections: A Prose Workshop with Kofi Antwi via Zoom
August 1 @ 12:30 pm - 4:30 pmFree – $124
The Intuitive Recollections Workshop will challenge writers to reframe narratives through memories of one’s personal experiences. During the four hours, writers will engage in establishing a distinct structure for prose writing. Writers will examine and discuss the text assigned. The prompts supplied by the workshop facilitator will serve as entry into the writer’s written work created in the workshop. Additionally, the instructor will offer an analysis of the in-workshop readings literary and poetic components, and feedback to writer’s work created during the class.
