Mission Statement

Our Vision: Hugo House: opening the literary world to everyone who loves books or has a drive to write. Our Mission: Hugo House is a place to read words, hear words, and make your own words better.

Description

Hugo House is a place where people can read words, hear words, and make their own words better. Hugo House is a place for writers, with a concentrated focus on helping anyone who wants to write. We offer readings, classes, book launches, workshops, teen programs, consultations with professional writers, and much more. Our namesake, Richard Hugo, was raised by severe, taciturn grandparents but overcame his impoverished childhood to become a nationally renowned poet. As Hugo wrote, "Writing is a way of saying you and the world have a chance." Everyone wants to make their mark-to find and leave a record of who they are. Hugo House is a place where readers and writers come together to celebrate the power of words.
