Kids Write-In

Join us for creative inspiration and fun writing projects to try!

Kids Write-In is a free, weekly writing circle for elementary school-aged youth who want to write independently or with the help of an adult. In each 40 minute session, students have the opportunity to read various styles of writing, discuss these with their peers, practice creative writing of their own, and share with each other, if they want to! These sessions take place Online using Zoom on Wednesdays from 4–4:40 pm.

Please note that this is a program for KIDS ONLY! Because this program involves youth, we require that all participants who join via Zoom start the hour with their cameras on so that Hugo House instructors can verify the identity of attendees. If you don’t verify your identity by turning on your camera when asked by the instructor, we reserve the right to remove you from the Zoom meeting. If you have any questions about this policy, please send an email to If you are an adult looking for writing opportunities, please check the Classes and Events pages!
