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.

Pressure is at the heart of any great story, but sometimes we instinctively protect our characters. Join instructor Becky Mandelbaum and learn to create a scene that keeps your reader turning the page. We'll look at how to increase narrative tension by applying pressure through plot, interiority, pacing, and more, taking guidance from examples in contemporary fiction and famous fairy tales. Becky has published two books including the recent novel, The Bright Side Sanctuary for Animals, and her work has appeared in numerous literary magazines.

Instructor: Becky Mandelbaum. Dates: Class size is limited so register early! Class meets Wednesday, May 25, from 6-8:00pm and is $35. Click here to register. To see the full listing of current Chuckanut Writers classes, click here.
