Travel Writing as Pilgrimage

In this workshop, we will explore our stories of personal questing, travel, and transformation. Each week, we will write and share from prompts that help us examine periods or places through which we’ve journeyed. We will also discuss the process and craft of writing creative nonfiction as we read writers such as Gloria Steinem, Pico Iyer, Patricia Hampl, and Jamaica Kincaid. Students will have the opportunity to workshop an essay in a supportive environment. All levels welcome.

Hugo House is temporarily moving! May 19 is the last date Hugo House will hold classes at its current location. Starting May 20, Hugo House classes will be held at 1021 Columbia Street, Seattle, WA 98104.

This class will change locations in week 6.

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.
