- Events & Programs
These craft talks by novelists, essayists, poets, and memoirists focus on writing as process rather than finished product, examining how language works to inspire and provoke new ideas through live close readings of the writer’s own or others’ work. These talks are designed to apply to writers of all genres as well as illuminate well-known works for avid readers. The talks are followed by an interview with a noted editor, writer, or critic.
Guest writers for the Word Works series often teach a class in conjunction with their talks. These classes require a separate registration. For more information on our classes, visit the class page.
Series passes are $72 for general admission and $58 for Hugo House members (20% off ticket prices).
