Chuckanut Writers Workshops & Classes

Village Books and WCC Community and Continuing Education have created a writing instruction collaboration called Chuckanut Writers. Writing classes, seminars, and conferences (including the amazing Chuckanut Writers Conference) will inspire and encourage writers at all stages of their writing journey. Check out a few of the classes that are just around the corner listed below. Community & Continuing Education classes are self-supporting and require a minimum number of students to run. Unless they hear from you in time, they may be forced to cancel a class you were planning to take due to low enrollment. Please register early.

Do you wonder if anyone would be interested in your story? Or perhaps you worry you're not a good enough writer to write the book you want to put out into the world. Do you hear a voice in your head telling you you're wasting your time? These are the voices of the inner critic and the most important thing you can do for your writing is learn how to quiet these voices. Join author and writing coach Cami Ostman to learn how to work with the Inner Critic so that you can find the freedom, enthusiasm, and confidence to keep your fingers on the keyboard.

Write what you don't know! In this workshop, we'll explore the ways poetry can provide access to the unconscious, the dream world, the irrational, and the taboo. We'll experiment with forms and exercises to spark the imagination and open the door to mystery and surprise. Kevin Murphy has been writing and performing poetry for over 40 years.
