Hugo House: opening the literary world to everyone who loves books or has a drive to write.
Hugo House is a place to read words, hear words, and make your own words better.
How We Do It:
Hugo is a place to READ words, HEAR words
and MAKE your own words BETTER.
In the Words of Richard Hugo, We Value:
“To use language well requires self sacrifice…”
“Hope that humanity will always survive civilization.”
“You owe reality nothing and the truth about your feelings everything.”
