Village Books and WCC Community and Continuing Education have established a writing instruction collaboration called Chuckanut Writers. Writing classes, seminars, and conferences will inspire and encourage writers at all stages of their writing journey.
Gain valuable, real-world insight and professional guidance from Micky Neilson, an established NY Times Bestselling Author and former head of the publishing department at Blizzard Entertainment. The philosophy and execution of creative writing will come into focus with lessons on character, concept, theme, pacing, outlining, suspension of disbelief, dialogue, general mechanics, world building, research, and overcoming writer's block. The course will also touch on writing short stories, the three-act structure, and use of flashbacks.
