Are you ready to shake up your writing practice? Fall classes are about to begin. Most classes and workshops are being offered online, which means that geography doesn’t matter. We’ve put together a list of a number of places that are offering online adult learning programs this fall (some starting very soon). This list is not comprehensive and you are encouraged to check offerings at colleges, universities, and even bookstores. The classes vary in length, format, starting date, and price. But it’s free to browse, so have a look:

fall classes, virtually

August 25, 2020

Registration for fall classes at Hugo House is now open, and if you register by August 31, 2020, you’ll get Early Bird Pricing. All Hugo House classes and events will take place virtually for the remainder of 2020, so you can participate no matter where you are.

The Fall catalog is crammed with inspired instructors offering stimulating classes, from one- and two-session intensives to courses of six to sixteen weeks and even yearlong programs. Subjects cover the gamut: fiction, nonfiction, memoir, poetry, mixed genre, reading, and pretty much everything in between.

As usual, Hugo House also has a busy calendar of readings and writing activities.

If you were feeling a little reluctant about taking a class, here’s the latest from Hugo House:

Hugo House spring classes are open for registration, and registrations through Monday, March 16, 2020, will receive an early bird discount. This season, students will have access to all classes via video conference for as long as COVID-19 remains a threat.

While our doors will remain open, some teachers may opt to hold their classes entirely via video conference. We have marked these classes as such in the online catalog. However, much is subject to change, and our cancellation policy will reflect our evolving situation.

Making time to reflect and write with others brings us joy and solace even — and perhaps even more so — in difficult and uncertain times. We invite you to join us in creating something beautiful this spring.

With that in mind, we encourage you to browse the full catalog and find the spring classes that are right for you.

This is good news not only for locals, but also for those who might not otherwise have an opportunity to take a class in Seattle. Hugo House offers classes of varying lengths in poetry, fiction, nonfiction, mixed genre, reading, the writing life, and youth workshops.
