Write Time is a free weekly drop-in writing circle for teens ages 13-19. 


Write Time is a writing circle that takes place every Thursday from 4:30-5:30pm during the school year. Want to improve your craft and learn new techniques during brief opening lessons? Bring something you’re working on and nail down your next sentence? Or simply come to share your work with other young writers and receive feedback! Come join us at Write Time! 

Please note that this is a program for TEENS 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 youth@hugohouse.org. If you are an adult looking for writing opportunities, please check the Classes and Events pages!
