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.
Poetry as Overwinter : Wakefulness in a Time of Stillness & Big Sleeps with Rosebud Ben-Oni via Zoom
November 1 @ 12:30 pm - 4:30 pmFree – $124
In this workshop, we will explore what it means to roam and carry one’s self through various landscapes as other life hibernates and briefly exits the winter season of stillness and big sleeps. What does it mean to live in a realm emptied and yet not devoid of life? How can this be a period of joy and discovery? We will reimagine the many awakenings possible in poetry, drawing inspiration from Keith S. Wilson, Camille T. Dungy, Chase Berggrun, Julia Salem, and more.
NB: This workshop will be held on Zoom. It will be capped at 15 students. Please note: The Altman Person of Color Scholarships are free and given on a first come, first served basis. PLEASE register for ONLY ONE scholarship PER MONTH. Please notify us right away if your plans change and you cannot attend the class. We will then reopen the slot so another student may register. Thank you in advance for this consideration.
