It’s almost time for Scribes!

Since 1998, Scribes Writing Camps have been a hub for young writers in the Seattle area, offering an opportunity to find their community, learn from accomplished writers, and further their love of reading and writing.

This year, in response to feedback from former Scribes and their parents, Hugo House is expanding the program to include one- and two-week sessions, as well as camps focused on a specific genre of writing.

Over the next few weeks, we’ll be sharing interviews with some of the instructors to learn more about their literary style and why they’re excited for this year’s camps.

This week’s featured instructor is Ramon Isao, who’ll be leading Screenwriting Scribes from July 15–19 at Hugo House.

Quick! Favorite word, right now. 


A book or writer you wish you’d known about when you were 15 OR a book you wish had been around when you were 15:

I wish I’d known about James Baldwin.

I knew I was going to be a writer when…

I realized that books were written by people called writers. I jumped up and down on a couch. My dad thought I was going crazy. “I’m going to be a writer, Dad, because books are written by writers!”

What are you most looking forward to about teaching at Hugo House?

I LOOOOOOOOOOOVE teaching Scribes, but I’ve never been able to talk screenwriting! I’m excited to finally have an in-depth opportunity to get into the craft and the art of SCREENWRITING!
