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.

Youth Grades 3-5 The Wonders of Writing: Journalism, Fiction, & More!

August 5 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm


The Wonders of Writing: Journalism, Fiction, & More! 
August 5-9

Participants will learn from a journalist and author two different facets of writing. Over a week, students will learn how to write a short age-appropriate news article (including learning more about the 5 W’s in storytelling). They will also learn how to write a short fiction story on a topic that interests them. The class includes creative thinking, brainstorming, idea building, character creation and all of the wonders of different writing styles. 

This is a full-day camp. Students should plan to bring a lunch.

From being a journalist, to currently a communications director and now author, one thing remains the same for Courtney, her love of storytelling and words. Courtney Carter DeJesus previously worked as a television news reporter for many years before becoming a communications director. Courtney received her bachelor’s degree from the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University, her master’s degree from the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism, and certification in Management from Harvard Business School. Courtney, her husband and their two children are from New York, but they currently live in Rhode Island. “Eva The Kid Reporter” is her first children’s book.
