Write Here, Write Now!
Sun, Apr 14 at 9:30am
Write Here Write Now is a unique, collaborative one-day writers’ conference for all levels of writers.
This event was created by Seattle7, and Hugo House is excited to take on the fun, fast-paced day of mini-lessons, one-on-one author conferences, and lots and lots of writing. It Includes snacks, collaboration, and camaraderie with some of the Pacific Northwest’s finest published authors and the guarantee that each participant will write and learn more than they thought possible in one day.
At Hugo House, we know that writers can help each other achieve great things. Write Here Write Now is all about writing: with support, lessons, tips, prompts, and advice from friendly experts, and with the good cheer of a room full of writers.
Over the course of eight creative, productive, resource-packed hours you will:
- Take part in six author-led Mini Writing Lessons
- Write for six sustained 45-minute blocks, designed to maximize productivity, alongside seasoned writers who will offer encouragement, support, and advice
- Meet one-on-one with an author who will read your excerpts, troubleshoot your ideas, doctor your plots, and otherwise help you develop your writing in a private 12-minute writers’ consultation session
- Attend keynote opening and closing remarks from bestselling and award winning authors
- Share lunch and conviviality with fellow writers
Mini Lessons and Writing Sessions
Each hour will begin with a 10-minute mini lesson by one of the Pacific Northwest’s most successful authors, followed by a 45-minute writing block. Bring a project you’re already working on, or write from the prompts we’ll provide. Either way, we feel confident you’ll go home with more pages (more good pages) than you’d imagined possible from a single, productive, inspirational day.
Event seating will be in our theater and select classrooms. Mini-lessons will be broadcast live to a TV in each classroom. Seating is first come, first served.
One-on-One Author Consultations
We will schedule you for a 12-minute session with a published author who will offer feedback on a short excerpt of your work, chat through ideas, plug plot holes, help with pitches or queries, and otherwise give personalized writing support.
