Interested in writing? Sign up for our monthly Just Write enewsletter today!

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!

Memoirs begin with memory. Writing a memoir means shaping memories--places, people, relationships, family stories, events both big and small--into a coherent narrative. This class will offer ideas, strategies, and suggestions to help you meet that challenge. We'll discuss how (and where) to begin putting the past on the page, how to develop and sustain your work, how to use family materials--journals, letters, photographs--to enhance your story. Bring your ideas, your thoughts, your questions, and your hopes. Laura Kalpakian is the author of numerous novels and the soon to be released handbook for memoir writers entitled, Memory into Memoir.

Instructor: Laura Kalpakian. Class meets Thursday, September 2 from 5:00-6:30pm, and is $29; click to register. To see the full listing of current Chuckanut Writers classes, click here
