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.

Poetry is the art of expressing the inexpressible. In poetry, the ordinary becomes miraculous and the miraculous is revealed as ordinary. We'll explore ways of writing poems that reach beyond the limitations of what we know to include the unconscious, the dream world, the irrational. We'll experiment with forms and exercises to spark the imagination and open the door to mystery. Kevin Murphy is "poet-in-residence" for the Chuckanut Radio Hour. His most recent release is The Bird of Pure Midnight, a poetry-with-music CD and chapbook.
