Write with Hugo House is a free drop-in writing circle for all ages and genres of writing.
Looking for ongoing inspiration, feedback, and ways to connect with other writers? Attend free drop-in writing circles facilitated by established local writers from Hugo House! Bring something you’re working on, or just come ready to write. You will have the opportunity to share your work and get feedback—but only if you want to (no pressure). You can also use this time to increase productivity on your current work in progress, surrounded by fellow writers.
