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.
What makes a good story for stage, movies, television, or radio? What makes a dramatic piece compelling? What do drama and film do that novels don't, and vice versa? We'll write and develop material like working writers. Teamwork and individual work are both supported. We'll be writing a short piece, reading scenes, revising, and standing up each other's material in class. We learn to write better by writing, and by helping each other with imaginative critique and constructive honesty. A retired Professor of Theatre from WWU's Fairhaven College of Interdisciplinary Studies, Daniel Larner has taught play and screen writing for 35 years. Space is limited--register early!
