Richard Hugo & His Circles

Richard Hugo (1923-1982) was at the center of lively and interesting literary milieus as a young poet in Seattle and then as an influential teacher in Missoula, Montana. In this reading class, we’ll discuss key works by Hugo and his teachers, classmates, friends, and students, including Theodore Roethke, Carolyn Kizer, James Wright, David Wagoner, James Welch, Madeline DeFrees, William Kittredge, Annick Smith, James Crumley, Robert Wrigley, and others.

Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online-either through Zoom or through Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform-through Spring quarter 2021.

All times are listed in Pacific Time.
