Works in Progress is Hugo House's semi-monthly open mic series inclusive of diverse formats and storytelling crafts. Read your work—poetry, fiction, essays, memoirs, plays, music, comedy, and more—and connect with our literary community!

We are actively cultivating a low-pressure, welcoming environment for readers and guests of all skill levels and literary experience. We especially encourage BIPOC, LGBTQIA2S+, and other marginalized voices to take the mic at Works in Progress.

Announcing a new NEW format! Hugo House invites our WIP community to join us before the open mic portion of the event for an all-new writing group!

Doors to the Salon will now open at 5:00 pm PT for interested writers who want to come early, carve out some sacred writing time, and share ideas on craft and content. This open, unstructured space is intended to create opportunities for folks to build community and enjoy some quality time writing their own works-in-progress! Anticipate complimentary donuts and coffee!
