What is Write-O-Rama?
Write-O-Rama is a full day of dozens of workshops offered by Hugo House's writing teachers. Sample Hugo classes, dabble in different forms and genres, and share your fresh, new writing before the ink even dries at an open mic.

Find the schedule here.

One of the best parts? Write-O-Rama is a fundraising event for Richard Hugo House. All money raised through registration goes directly to helping us continue to be an ally to writers.

Registration Levels
The prices for the event are as follows:

Write-O-Rama Supporter: $85 (includes Write-O-Rama admission and a membership to Hugo House!)

Write-O-Rama Participant: $50 (includes Write-O-Rama admission)

Student/Low-Income* Level: $25 (includes Write-O-Rama admission)

*You qualify for the low-income price if you make less than $30,000 a year as an individual and less than $55,000 in a household.

Day-of registration will also be offered at the above prices, beginning at 10:30 a.m., though you can drop in at any time during Write-O-Rama, register, and get writing. The event officially begins at 11 a.m.

How does Write-O-Rama work?

Hugo teachers generously volunteer their time to teach fifty-minute mini-classes on poetry, prose, revision, outreach for writers, finding inspiration, and much more. Writers like you sign up to participate and get lots of great writing prompts, try out subjects you're thinking about investing more deeply in, and meet other like-minded writers! Plus, proceeds from Write-O-Rama go to support the work we do here at Hugo House, from classes to resources for writers to readings and events.

Workshops begin at 11 a.m. and run every hour until 6 p.m. (with a lunch break and event from 1 - 2 p.m. and final open mic/performance workshop at 5 p.m.)

In the event that you must cancel your Write-O-Rama registration, cancellations must be requested in writing. (Email is fine.) All refunds are subject to a $25 cancellation fee up to a week before the event; after that, no refunds will be made.
