We’ll study, write, and workshop short essays that delve deeply into the first-person POV, focusing on structure, narrative voice, and scene in order to cultivate vulnerability without self-indulgence, pathos without sentimentality, sharing without oversharing. Students will receive one-on-one editorial advice as well as critique from fellow students as they prepare essays to submit for publication. Open to writers of all levels.

Please note: The first day of class has been rescheduled to Monday, January 18. The class will meet on Monday, February 15 to make up for the reschedule. 

Hugo House will only process refund requests that are submitted 5 business days or more before the class start date.

Administrative fees apply. Please see our full refund policy here.

Class sessions may be recorded if a session falls on a holiday, or if a student has access needs. Class recordings are not guaranteed.

We do not tolerate racist, sexist, homophobic, ableist, transphobic or any other oppressive behaviors, regardless of who commits them. Please check out our full community guidelines by clicking here.
