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.

Plains Poems & Prairie Tarot with Erica Reid (via Zoom)

July 14 @ 12:30 pm - 2:30 pm


Class begins with an exploration of prairie poems old and new, from poets including Emily Dickinson, Heid E. Erdrich, and Camille Dungy. Afterwards we will generate plains-flavored poems of our own, aided by a prairie-specific divination deck that includes thistle for patience, hawks for insight, fire for change, and more.

NB: This class will be taught on Zoom (Sunday, July 14, 12:30-2:30 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. 

Erica Reid’s debut collection Ghost Man on Second won the 2023 Donald Justice Poetry Prize and will be published by Autumn House Press in early 2024. Erica’s poems appear in Rattle, Cherry Tree, Birmingham Poetry Review, Colorado Review, and more. ericareidpoet.com
