Chuckanut Writers Conference 2024

Chuckanut Writers Conference logo

After two years in the virtual realm, the Chuckanut Writers Conference is delighted to announce its return to a live, in-person experience! Get ready to immerse yourself in a world of words and inspiration as we present the Chuckanut Writers Conference 2024: “Return to Your Senses.” 

This year’s theme challenges writers to awaken their senses and translate those sensations into prose that leaps off the page. It’s time to break free from the confines of screens and immerse yourself in the richness of an in-person writing experience. 

For more information and registration, please visit the Chuckanut Writers Conference website, here: chuckanutwritersconference.com

Under the umbrella of the Chuckanut Writers program, the Chuckanut Writers Conference has enjoyed the privilege of celebrating the literary arts in our region for eleven years. Village Books and Whatcom Community College continues our collaboration to bring the community our quarterly Chuckanut Writers workshops and courses designed to inspire and encourage writers at all stages of their writing journey.

We invite you to keep up to date with Chuckanut Writers’ class offerings and other news through the WCC Community & Continuing Education email newsletter and the Village Books’ email newsletter.
