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.

Turning Your Life into a Young Adult/Middle Grade Novel with Nora Raleigh Baskin (Via Zoom)

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


Flannery O’Connor once said “Anyone who survived childhood has enough material to write for the rest of his life.” In this course participants will learn how to use their true life memories and tell the story they’ve always wanted to tell. We will learn the ways to successfully turn those memories into fiction, as well as the dos and don’ts, the pitfalls, and red flags for editors.

NB: This class will be taught on Zoom (Saturday, June 22, 12:30-2:30 PM) and will be capped at 10 students. 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.

Nora Raleigh Baskin is the author of 15, soon to be 16 novels for middle grade and young adult authors, including Nine, Ten: A September 11 story (S&S). Her books have won several awards—2010 American Library Association Schneider Family Book Award for Anything But Typical (S&S), and in 2016, an International Literacy Association Notable Books for a Global Society for Ruby on the Outside (S&S). Her latest Her first sci-fi, Elsewhere will be published with Little, Brown in 2024
