If you are a middle school student who loves creative writing, join us at Just Write! A free monthly drop-in writing circle where young writers can acquire new skills, experiment with a variety of genres, and meet other young writers, too! All Just Write! sessions are facilitated by a published writer and experienced youth educator.
Just Write! sessions take place on the first or second Wednesday of each month from 5:00-6:00 pm PT on Zoom throughout the school year. Please note that this is a program for YOUTH ONLY! Because this program involves youth, we require that all participants who join via Zoom start the hour with their cameras on so that Hugo House instructors can verify the identity of attendees. If you don’t verify your identity when asked by the instructor, we reserve the right to remove you from the Zoom meeting.
Please include accommodation requests upon registration at least 72 hours in advance. If you have questions, please email email@example.com.
