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.

Very few works of fiction contain only one character, and how characters interact with one another often requires them to use direct speech. Explore the differences between realism and reality in characters' voices, vocabulary choices, avoiding "info-dump" while still conveying information, and the power of character silences.

Instructor: Roby Blecker. Class meets Tuesday and Thursday, February 23 and 25 from 6:00 - 9:00pm, and is $99; click to register. To see the full listing of current Chuckanut Writers classes, click here.
