This is a free course for writers in all genres who are Black, Indigenous, and/or people of color (BIPOC). Are you unsure how to organize a literary project, like writing a book? Or do you need support organizing literary events, like a reading? Do you feel you’ve outgrown your “to do” list and need a stronger system of organization and accountability? In this course, students will learn project management principles, such as creating a Work Breakdown Structure (WBS); defining a project scope; estimating project costs (yes, even writing a book accrues out-of-pocket expenses!); identifying project threats; scheduling tasks and meeting deadlines; and allocating resources to support your needs. This course is open to writers and creative nonprofit managers, and it’s a great opportunity to network with your literary community. Students will walk away with a work plan they can successfully launch on their own.

Most classes are offered at a general and member tuition rates based on instruction hours, with Hugo House members receiving a 10% discount on classes fewer than six sessions.

Early bird discounts are available during the first two weeks of registration and apply to both general and member tuition rates.

To help provide financial accessibility to our class offerings, some classes each quarter are offered with a sliding-scale tuition model, allowing students to pay what they can for the class. For these classes, tuition increments starting at $5 and going up to 125% of the standard pricing will be listed on the page.
