Established in honor of famed Northwest poet Richard Hugo, and the nexus of Seattle’s literary community, the Hugo House hosts readings, classes and workshops, as well as offering various events around town. Writers-in-residence keep office hours at this 1902 house (a former mortuary), during which they’re available for free consultations about writing projects.

The extensive zine library invites all-day lingering, and there’s also a library, a conference room, a theater and a cafe with a small stage.
