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.

Slapering Hol Press Virtual Reading Series with Susana H. Case, Lynn McGee, and Sean Nevin
May 3 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pmFree
During this difficult time when everyone is deprived of contact with our beloved poetry community, we hope that the SHP virtual reading series will connect and inspire us until we can meet again in person at the Hudson Valley Writers Center. This reading is free and open to the public, via Zoom, but donations are welcome and encouraged.
Join three of our incredible Slapering Hol Press poets—Susana H. Case, Lynn McGee, and Sean Nevin— as they read from their most recent collections and discuss what it meant for each of them to have their first chapbooks published by SHP.
NB: When you sign up online, you will receive an automated reservation with the Zoom link. Please make sure you type your email address correctly when you sign up for your free tickets otherwise you will not receive the zoom link. If you do not receive the link, please email [email protected] the day before the reading.
