Hugo House offers a track of classes in Poetry, Fiction, and Creative Nonfiction to help you feel confident in progressing through your writing with the appropriate tools, skills, and an understanding of the diverse voices at work in each genre.  You may self-select into classes based on where you feel comfortable in a particular genre, and you are welcome to take classes as many times as you would like.

In this intermediate workshop, we will be broadening our poetic horizons through in-class reading and writing, and discovering our own personal writing goals, be that mastering a craft skill or publishing a poem in a literary magazine. We will also be reading each other’s work with a keen eye, not only to improve these individual poems, but also in order to acquire the invaluable skill of revision as something that can be practiced on your own outside of workshop.

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.
