Scribes Workshops & Summer Camps

Whether you are just starting to explore your written voice or are looking to learn new skills and forms of writing, Youth Workshops and Scribes Summer Camps will inspire creativity and nurture your writing life! 

During Fall, Winter, and Spring quarters, Hugo House offers new workshops for youth grades 5–12 to grow and develop as writers in a safe and nurturing environment. Our instructors—all accomplished writers, out-of-the-box thinkers, and experienced educators—create fun, engaging sessions to keep you writing and connecting with othersClasses are offered in a variety of writing genres, so that writers can explore new forms of writing and/or practice their favorites! To look through workshops only, select “Youth Workshop” in the Course Filter below.

Scribes Summer Camps provide young writers the opportunity to extend and build upon how they’ve grown in these workshops – students participate in week-long, all-day camps in which they can focus on, dig deep into, and nurture their inner writer. Students work alongside instructors who are published writers and educators themselves, as well as guest teaching artists – members of the local writing community who offer additional expertise and perspective to help students improve their writing! To find out if a specific camp will be hosted online or in-person, be sure to read the camp’s ‘location’. Camp age distinctions are for students who are entering those grades in Fall 2021.

To make our programs more accessible for all youth, registration is scaled at 30%–60%–90%–100%-110% so that families choose to pay what they can. If you choose to pay 110%, the extra funds will support other students who pay at a lower rate. If you have any questions, please call 206-322-7030 or email
