Write Time for Teens
Write Time for Teens is a free drop-in writing circle for creative writing teens ages 13-19. We welcome young writers to explore a variety of writing genres and techniques, flex and perfect their skills, and celebrate their work in community with their fellow artists! All sessions are facilitated by a published writer and experienced youth educator.
Virtual Write Time sessions occur on two Wednesdays per month from 5:00-6:00 pm PT on Zoom throughout the school year. Please note that this is a program for TEENS 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.
Interested in joining us in-person? In-person Write Time sessions take place on the first or second Saturday of the month from 1:00-2:00 pm PT at Hugo House throughout the school year. Snacks are provided.
