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.

Pure Critique with Peter Bricklebank
March 26 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm$505
NB: This is an 8-week online class that meets every Thursday from March 26th via ZOOM teleconferencing.
Peter Bricklebank is one of HVWC’s most beloved teachers. His class is one of the only multi-genre classes at the Center.
Whether writing in a garret, ivory tower, or a fever pitch of blind faith, at some point a writer needs to see other people, preferably equally deranged. For people writing fiction or nonfiction who need regular, astute feedback on ongoing projects of any length, this class provides that hothouse work environment. We’re going to put our manuscripts on the table and ask what works, what seems less effective, and why? Are there several narrative possibilities to the draft? Is the writer’s aim inchoate or focused? Are the form, structure, and pace helping or hindering the essential goal of the narrative?
