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.

“Moving through Story, Movie, Myth”: A Generative Poetry Workshop in connection with Tyler Mills’s Poetry Studio: Prompts for Poets taught by Tyler Mills (Via Zoom)

August 3 @ 12:30 pm - 4:30 pm

$150.00

Drawing from prompts in Poetry Studio: Prompts for Poets (University of Akron Press 2024), “Moving through Story, Movie, Myth” will invite writers to dive into writing poems about myth, TV, film, and prior stories. You’ll tangle with objects, scenes, perspectives, and moods. You’ll think about color, shape, and character. You’ll think about the creative self as a kind of director and as an observer, or audience. We’ll write together, drawing from prompts and sample poems, and we’ll talk about the work we make in discussion groups that offer gentle feedback. You’ll leave this class with 3-4 brand new drafts that you can take with you and keep working on. (Purchasing the book is encouraged but not required for this course.)

Tyler Mills is the author of the memoir The Bomb Cloud (Unbound Edition Press 2024), which received a Literature Grant from the Café Royal Foundation NYC.

A poet and essayist, her poems have appeared in The New YorkerThe Guardian, The New Republic, the Kenyon ReviewThe Believer, and Poetry, and her essays in AGNIBrevityCopper NickelRiver Teeth, and The Rumpus.
