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.

Jewish Writers Poetry Workshop with Sean Singer (via Zoom)

December 24 @ 10:00 am - 6:00 pm


This is a two-day workshop (December 24- December 25, 10AM-6 PM ET via Zoom) for writers who wish to engage with themes of Jewishness— identity, cultural history, Jewish as a religious or racial category, family, exile, diaspora, or ethics—in a time of rising antisemitism.

We will read a range of poets writing about these issues from a variety of literary traditions, not limited to those writing in English.


• Intensive feedback on developmental ideas, drafts, revision, and process

• Detailed notes on your poems that you make in the workshop, or that you bring to the workshop

• Increased confidence about the themes of the course and how to give attention to these from your own perspective

• Focus on a greater literacy of a variety of Jewish poets and poems which will lead to greater capacity to write with clarity about these themes (Jewish identity, exile, intergenerational trauma, and poems from the diaspora in English and other languages)

NB: This class will be taught on Zoom (December 24- December 25, 10AM-6 PM ET) and will be capped at 15 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.

All HVWC scholarship applications will be available on May 1 and will be due on May 15 for all summer/fall 2024 classes.
