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.

A Deep Dive into Deep Revision: A Master Class with Rachel Hadas (via Zoom)

September 22 @ 12:30 pm - 2:30 pm


In this two-hour workshop, we’ll take a close look at three techniques that are helpful to revising poems-in-progress or poems that don’t seem to quite work: squeezing out the excess; providing stepping stones; and moving the pieces around. In the week preceding the course, each student will send me two or three poems they’d like to have workshopped (I’ll choose one); and we’ll try to apply whichever technique works.  I expect everyone, very much including me, will learn something useful.

NB: This class will be taught on Zoom (Sunday, September 22, 12:30-2:30 PM ET) and will be capped at 12 students. Registrants will receive the Zoom link to the email address they use to register. It will arrive immediately after registration so please check your spam folder if you do not receive it. It will also be sent the day before class as a reminder. Please review the course policies page before registering for any classes. Please email [email protected] with any questions. Please send three poems to [email protected] by September 15th.

Rachel Hadas is the author of many books of poetry, essays, and translations.  Her most recent books are Ghost Guest (2023) and Pandemic Almanac (2022); two new collections, Forty-four Pastorals and From Which We Start Awake, are forthcoming in 2025. Rachel is professor Emerita at Rutgers University-Newark, where she taught English for many years.
