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.

Sarah Rizzuto holds an MFA from Southern Connecticut State University where she’s taught creative writing. She’s also taught Disability Studies, through the Women and Gender Studies program at SCSU. This June, she facilitated a workshop on disability poetry and activism as well as participated in New Haven’s One City Read. The One City Read focused on a memoir-in-essays titled Sitting Pretty that puts disability front and center. The International Festival of Arts & Idea scheduled events in response to Sitting Pretty and invited Sarah to read her poetry. She is the former president of the CT Poetry Society’s New Haven chapter. Along with being a poet, Sarah considers herself an advocate for social justice and hopes to publish her first chapbook soon.
