Works in Progress (Virtual)

Works in Progress is Hugo House's open mic series inclusive of diverse formats and storytelling crafts. Read your work—poetry, fiction, essays, memoirs, plays, music, comedy, and more—and connect with our literary community!

We are actively cultivating a low-pressure, welcoming environment for readers and guests of all skill levels and literary experience. We especially encourage BIPOC, LGBTQIA2S+, and other marginalized voices to take the mic at Works in Progress.

How it works:

  • Reading is open to all!
  • You don't have to read. Guests and audience members encouraged to attend.
  • The Zoom room is open fifteen minutes before showtime.
  • Sign-up is on a first-come basis and begins at check-in.
  • There is a brief intermission, approximately 15 minutes, between the two groupings of readers.

We encourage your feedback on how we can continue to build a safer and more engaging environment at these events! Email us at
