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.

Part of the WhaMemWriMo Series!

Writing about family and friends can be a daunting task when writing memoir. Whether good, bad, or indifferent, the key to turning people you know into characters on the page is choosing the details that evoke the relationship between yourself as narrator and the person as character. Using techniques drawn from traditional storytelling and modern improvisational theater, join Rebecca Mabanglo-Mayor, author of Dancing Between Bamboo Poles, in exploring how gesture, vocal quality, and silence can turn the people in our lives into vibrant characters.

Instructor: Rebecca Mabanglo-Mayor. Class meets September 19 from 5-6:30pm, and is $29; click to register. To see the full listing of current Chuckanut Writers classes, click here.
