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.

Orchids, Orchids, Orchids: Repetition as Revolution with Erica Reid (via Zoom)

July 9 @ 12:30 pm - 2:30 pm

Guided by poems from Kaveh Akbar, Wendy Videlock, A. E. Stallings, Chris Bullard, and more, this class examines the ways that the repetition of a single word can have a cumulative and explosive effect on a poem. This class includes time for generative response and an opportunity to share our writing.

NB: This class is capped at 15 and will be taught on Zoom. You will receive the link as soon as you register for class and in a reminder email the day before the class. It will be sent to the email address you use to register. Please check your spam folder if you do not receive it within five minutes. Please refer to our course policies before registering for any class.
