Writing Workshop and Fundraiser for Laurel Leigh

Wed, 09/22/2021 - 5:00pm to 7:00pm

Calling all writers! Village Books is proud to promote an online workshop to benefit a fundraiser for Laurel Leigh. A beloved local writer in Bellingham for many years, and long-time emcee of our Open Mics, Laurel is part of the Village Books family who is currently battling lung cancer. As part of her Gofundme fundraiser, author Steve Almond is offering an exclusive two-hour writing workshop to help raise money for Laurel's growing medical expenses. 

The class is called Creating an Irresistible Narrator (suitable for all levels of writers) and in this workshop, Steve will upend what you thought you knew about narrators and make you reconsider how you go about creating characters on the page. Find more information here: https://editor.sabinesloley.com/classes

Date: Wednesday, September 22, 5-7 p.m. PDT (8-10 Eastern)
Admission: The only way to get a seat is to donate $75 or more, right here, with "Steve Almond" mentioned in the comments. The zoom invitation will be sent via GoFundMe's Thank You email.
