Meets 2nd & 4th Thursdays, 6-8pm

The VB Writes Fiction Group features a unique array of members, whose experience ranges from those attempting to discover their voice, to those aspiring toward that completed novel.  All members come to the group with an open mind, ready to critique a wide variety of writing styles. We ask that new members attend at least two meetings prior to submitting their own work for critique.  We look forward to learning more about your current or upcoming fiction project, as well as your background in writing.

Ten years ago Claire Swedberg and Rita Hupy pondered how a small farming town could become an established, artistic community over the course of a few decades. Hundreds of interviews later, In the Valley of Mystic Light was the result - a story of art, community, and mysticism covering the early "Big Four Artists", dropout artists of Fishtown, and beyond.

VB Writes...Nonfiction & Memoir

Sun, 04/15/2018 - 3:00pm
1200 11th St
Bellingham, WA 98225-7015

Meets 1st & 3rd Sundays, 3-5pm

We have eclectic tastes that range from biography, history, nature writing, and self-help, but tend to focus primarily on the memoir. Our process is to bring a printed copy of your piece for each member of the group to follow while you read aloud. The group critiques aloud and also writes notes on your print out, and returns the print outs to you for you to keep. Critiquing is honest and encouraging. We ask that new members attend at least two meetings before submitting their own works for critique.

Maya Zeller, Jennifer Bullis, & Kathryn Smith, Alchemous Resistance: Group Reading - Poetry!

Sun, 04/15/2018 - 4:00pm
1200 11th St
Bellingham, WA 98225-7015

*Join us for this FREE Lit Live! event -- meet the author and get your book signed!*

Join authors Jennifer Bullis (Bellingham), Kathryn Smith (Spokane), and Maya Jewell Zeller (Spokane and Ellensburg) for a night of poetry exploring themes of resistance, solitude, and ecofeminism. Jennifer's poems are rich with earth tones and riotous cadences; Smith explores isolation via spare lyrics; and Maya's work uses a range of caesura to interrogate human-animal relationships and the anxiety of parenting in the Anthropocene.
