Hugo House, Seattle / Seeks Summer Interns

Submission fee


Scribes provides an opportunity for middle and high school students to engage with the creative-writing community and to participate in fun and mind-stretching programming that includes instruction from accomplished writers, writing exercises, interdisciplinary field trips, and exposure to a diverse range of genres, forms, and writers.

Each Scribes session is composed of approximately 20 students, two literary teaching artists, and one or two interns. Class runs for one or two weeks, Monday–Friday, 10 a.m.–4 p.m. Students readings are presented to the community at the end of each session on Thursday evening.

This summer we are continuing our Scribes partnerships with MOHAI (Museum of History and Industry) in South Lake Union, and with the Henry Art Gallery in University District. These camps are modeled after our traditional Scribes camp, so still expect activities and instruction in all genres (fiction, nonfiction, and poetry, along with experimental forms). Instructors will integrate museum exhibits into the overall Scribes curriculum, and students will tour the museums with a writer’s eye.
