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.

Write, Write, Write!: A Fiction Workshop for Teens with Tina Tocco (via Zoom)
October 3 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
One event on October 3, 2021 at 1:00 pm
Do you love to write fiction? Would you like to generate new work week after week? Would it be helpful to get feedback from other teens who love and understand writing just as much as you?
In this five-week workshop, we’ll use prompts to create new stories, experiment with different forms, and discuss the writing process. You’ll receive positive feedback so you can take what your produce in class and confidently improve your creative writing outside of class — both for your own projects and in school. In our last workshop, writers will have the opportunity to bring an edited piece they began in class to receive additional comments.
This class series is also ideal for students who want or need a creative writing boost to kick off the school year as full-time, in-person learning resumes.
This workshop will be taught via Zoom. The Zoom link will be emailed at the time of registration. (Please check spam / promotions filters.) Please email [email protected] with any questions.
