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 is on Sunday, December 8, 2019.
- $60 gives you entry to Write-O-Rama and five 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.
Registration begins at 12 p.m. The first class begins at 1 p.m. There are four class choices per 50-minute session. Choose your favorite, head to the 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, we’ll race through the halls ringing the Write-O-Rama bell, and you can head to your next class of choice.
