Writing Black at The House

Writing Black at The House has four simple goals: to create; to connect; to share; to empower. This writing group offers Black writers a dedicated space and time to hone their craft and expand their writing community.

First hour (5:30-6:30): Cassidy (the instructor) will be leading a generative writing session using prompts.

Second hour (6:30-7:30): The floor opens up. Folks are encouraged to engage with each other and their work. Make new connections, network, get out there!

Writing Black at The House is for Black writers at every stage of their creative journey to connect in a supportive, encouraging space.

Tickets are offered with sliding scale pricing, from $0-$25. Revenue from ticket sales directly supports Hugo House’s mission to provide space for all to read words, hear words, and make their own words better. We encourage you to pick a ticket price that is right for you.

The House bar will be open to serve alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages.
