Young writers have myriad opportunities to launch, explore, consume, and create great writing at Hugo House. Our conservatory-model instruction encourages students to read as writers, to critique established work and the new work of their peers, and to take risks with their writing while exploring voice and language. In our open writing circles, mentorship program, open mics, writing camps, and literary events, we strive to create an innovative creative-writing space for all youth. All Hugo House programs, workshops, and field trips are taught by professional, published writers who are also experienced teachers of the craft. Teens on the Young Writers Cohort help curate our teen course offerings; MC the teen open mic, Stage Fright; and offer peer-to-peer creative-writing feedback to other young writers. All programs are free unless otherwise specified, and scholarships are available for our writing camps and field trips. For more information on youth programs at Hugo House, call 206-322-7030, or email Sarah Leon at firstname.lastname@example.org. Youth programs are supported, in part, by: Amazon.com, Seattle Office of Arts & Cultural Affairs, The Maurer Family Foundation, Umpqua Bank
