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).

October 19 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Please join us in partnership with WordShedNYC Reading Series, an all-inclusive interdisciplinary community culturally and creatively integrated that combines art forms while interlocking ideas. We are thrilled to feature Judith Rose, Litany Burns, and Samuel Harps on Thursday, October 19 at 7 pm at the Hudson Valley Writers Center (in person). 

Judith remains curious. She writes, teaches, creates, choreographs, dances, listens, and learns. She is the director of Vital Movement™, the wellness practice she founded, based in Nyack, NY. She collaborates regularly with artists in various media to create new works addressing crucial themes in contemporary life. Her belief in the healing power of the arts continues to inspire her work as does her ever-deepening reverence for the mystery of life. www.judithroseVM.com
