This Fall, Hugo House is offering a number of Youth Classes, all of which are taught by local published writers and experienced youth educators. This is a great opportunity for youth to learn from and work with writers who also love to teach kids!
A weekly drop-in writing circle for teens, Write Time, begins next week. Students can show up to Write Time with any writing project they are working on or to practice writing to prompts given by the facilitator. Students can receive guidance from the facilitator and/or work in critique groups with peers during this time.
Hugo House also hosts Stage Fright, an open mic event and opportunity for young writers to take a risk and take the (virtual) stage to read/share their writing amongst peers. Stage Fright is hosted by the Young Writer’s Cohort, who are high school-aged youth spending a year working in an MFA-like program with Hugo House mentors. The first Stage Fright event is on November 18.
