Write-O-Rama is your chance to try out several workshops offered by Hugo House teachers all in one writing-packed day.
Sample Hugo House classes, meet our teachers, and try out genres and topics outside your purview without the pressure of registering for a full class.
Write-O-Rama happens twice a year—once in the summer and again in the winter.
The next Write-O-Rama will take place virtually, via Zoom, on Sunday, November 22, 2020, from 12–4 pm.
- $60 gives you entry to Write-O-Rama and four workshops of your choice.
- $100 gives you entry plus a discounted Hugo House membership, which is good for one year of early registration, class and event discounts, discounts at local bookstores, and other great benefits.
- $150 gives you all of the above, plus a three-month Libro.fm membership, which includes 3 audiobook credits to use on over 150,000 audiobooks. You’ll also enjoy 30% off all additional audiobook purchases during the membership.
This winter’s Write-O-Rama will be held via Zoom. The first class begins at 12 pm. There are four class choices per 50-minute session. Choose your favorite, head to the virtual room in which it’s held, and the instructor will give a brief talk on the topic followed by a writing prompt or exercise. At the 50-minute mark, you can stay in the room or sign out and sign in to your next class of choice. The last class of the day will end at 4 pm.
