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.

Writing poetry is an affordable and efficient vehicle for exploring little-known regions of inner and outer space. In this playful workshop for poets of all levels of experience, we'll experiment with forms and exercises to spark the imagination and open the door to mystery. We'll talk about poetry as performance and poetry as a force for cultural health. Kevin Murphy is "poet-in-residence" for the Chuckanut Radio Hour and 2017 winner of a Bellingham Mayor's Arts Award.

Instructor: Kevin Murphy. Class meets Oct 21-Nov 4 on Saturdays from 10am-12pm, and is $85; click to register. To see the full listing of current Chuckanut Writers classes, click here.
