Write-O-Rama is a full day of dozens of workshops offered by Hugo House’s writing teachers. Learn how to craft a found poem, improve the voice of your fiction, write a nonfiction micro-essay, or participate in the many other tutorials we offer — all in the course of a day. It’s a chance to not only sample Hugo House classes and teachers, but also to experience genres and topics outside of your purview without the pressure of registering for a full class. The next Write-O-Rama will take place on June 14. Tickets will go on sale on May 15. Check out the Write-O-Rama schedule and the Class Descriptions.

Event Overview

Registration begins at 10:30 a.m., at which time we’ll also provide some pre-writing fuel: bagels and Caffe Vita coffee. The first class begins at 11 a.m. There are at least five 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. After the 12:50 bell, lunch and an event (TBA) will be held in the Cabaret. Then, classes will run from 2-5 p.m. [hr]
