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.

HVWC Gala 2024

September 20 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

$175.00 – $2,500.00

The Hudson Valley Writers Center gala will be Friday, Sept. 20th from 6-9 pm in our beautiful historic venue overlooking the Hudson in Sleepy Hollow. The center offers over 200 in person and virtual programs a year to support a diverse community of readers and writers: memoir writing classes and poetry readings, new programs going behind the scenes in book publishing, outreach into our schools, scholarships and much more. The Hudson Valley Writers Center is a non-profit organization and your support is crucial in sustaining the vibrant literary culture that we champion.

This year we will honor the Pulitzer Prize-winning and #1 bestselling author Stacy Schiff who is praised for her writing, brilliant storytelling and eye-opening history. We have a memorable evening planned with a silent auction, cocktails, hearty hors d’oeuvres, music, a beautiful sunset, and Q&A with our honoree.
