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.

Simile Craft Class with Rachel Hadas via Zoom

April 23, 2022 @ 12:30 pm - 2:30 pm

$124
From Homer to A.E. Stallings, similes play a vital role in making poetry precise, memorable, and vivid. Sometimes, though similes are as much about unlikeness as likeness – as a Homeric scholar has observed, similes can go off the rails.  Let’s dip into a few examples of this familiar but underrated poetic tool and see what we find.

NB: This is a one-day Master Class taught on Zoom and capped at 17 students. Slots will fill quickly so please register now if you want a spot.

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 in November.

Rachel Hadas is the author of many books of poetry, essays, and translations; her two most recent books, PIECE BY PIECE (selected prose) and LOVE AND DREAD (poems), were both published in the summer of 2021. The recipient of many awards, she is Board of Governors professor of English at Rutgers-Newark, where she has taught for many years.
