Hugo House, Seattle / Writers-in-Residence (Poetry) / Call for Artists

Submission fee


Hugo House, a nonprofit center for writers, is currently accepting applications for a writer-in-residence with a poetry focus.

Since 1999, our writers-in-residence program has supported writers two-fold. The writers-in-residence themselves receive a monthly stipend and paid teaching opportunities, along with the time and space to complete a manuscript. The program also gives writers in Seattle an opportunity to receive writing guidance and advice by a published writer, free of charge. Writers-in-residence are available September 15 – June 15.
