Hugo House

1634 11th Avenue
Seattle, WA 98122 United States
206.322.7030 https://hugohouse.org

We describe ourselves most often as a writers’ center: a place where writers can come to meet others interested in the craft, take classes, consult with other writers, and attend readings and events. We also offer fellowships and opportunities for writers to work within their craft, such as Made at Hugo House, our two writers-in-residence, and instructorship.
