Richard Hugo House is a community for writers, and our classes are at the heart of that community. Our students come from a variety of backgrounds and life experiences—what they all have in common is a love of language and words.
Our classes focus on generating new work and are taught by accomplished writers who are also stellar teachers. We offer courses on a wide range of subjects, from poetry and performance to zine-making, memoir, blogging, novel-writing, the nuts and bolts of the publishing business and even reading seminars:
Whether you take a teen class, a ZAPP workshop or a six-week course, you’ll meet other writers and readers who are just as passionate about words as you.
