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.

Sensual Time: writing the lyric moment in short poems with Richie Hofmann (via Zoom)

April 16 @ 12:30 pm - 2:30 pm

Please note that this workshop is now sold out! However, THIS WORKSHOP WILL BE RECORDED!  Purchase the private link to view the class for 2 weeks.
Please write to [email protected] to be put on the waitlist or to be sent the purchase link for this class after the class takes place and also feel free to check out our Recorded classes page, where it will ultimately be uploaded. 

There’s a traditional view of the lyric poem as capturing one moment in time—expanding it, slowing it down, exploring it, making it vivid, sensuous, and memorable. In this generative one-day workshop we’ll explore various strategies of writing the single lyric moment, reading examples from classic and contemporary poetry, discussing craft, drafting a brand new piece, sharing with fellow writers, and making new writing friends.

NB: This class will be taught on Zoom and capped at 15. Link will be sent to email you use to register at the time of registration and again the day before the class. Please make sure to read our course policies page regarding workshop conduct and logistics before registering for any class at HVWC. Scholarship information will be available for this class on November 15th and applications are due on December 15, 2022.

Richie Hofmann is the author of two collections of poetry, Second Empire (Alice James, 2015) and A Hundred Lovers (Knopf, 2022). The recipient of the Ruth Lilly and Wallace Stegner Fellowships, he currently teaches in the creative writing program at Stanford University.
