2021-22 Hugo Fellows Final Reading
This spring, the 2021-22 Hugo House Fellows invite you to their reading, “Rituals for Perennial Awakening: a reading inspired by & in search of healing.”
The Fellows will read from the projects they’ve been working on during the Hugo Fellowship, part of our program that provides support to emerging writers. Hear work from Scott Bentley, s.c. bostwick, C.R. Glasgow, Marguerite Harrold, Rebecca Marrall, and Troy Osaki. Writers-in-residence Jessica Mehta and Ruth Joffre, who served as mentors for this class of Fellows, will emcee.
