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.

When we think of memoir, we tend to think of prose accounts, but for centuries poets have been telling their life stories through poems. In this workshop, we'll explore how you can write about important moments in your life in poems. We'll look at some examples of memoir poems, and then, through lively and playful writing exercises, begin to craft our own memoirs in verse. Barbara Bloom has an MA in creative writing from San Francisco University and has taught creative writing for over 30 years. One hour lunch break provided.

Instructor: Barbara Bloom. Class meets Oct 14 from 9am-4pm, and is $85; click to register. To see the full listing of current Chuckanut Writers classes, click here.
