Book Lab is a year-long intensive class for writers seeking to revise, restructure, rethink, and finalize a book-length manuscript. Students form a small cohort of writers all working toward the same goal. Classes include workshops, craft instruction, visits from publishing professionals, and one-on-one feedback sessions. The Book Lab instructor also provides an editorial review of your entire manuscript, line edits where appropriate, and a detailed plan for further revisions and/or agent submission. At the end of the session, a second well-published writer is contracted by Hugo House to give your manuscript a high-level read with a page of editorial notes. Book Lab seeks to help students cross that elusive finishing line from draft to publishable work.
Beginning Fall 2021, we will be adding select in-person classes back to our course catalog. The majority of our classes will still be offered via Zoom.
If a class says IN-PERSON in its title, it will take place in person at our permanent home in Seattle.
If a class says ASYNCHRONOUS in its title, it will take place on Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform.
If a class does not have a marker after its title, it will take place via Zoom.
