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, and how to use journals, letters, and photographs to enhance your story. Bring your ideas, your thoughts, your hopes, and questions. Leave with a handout to guide you, and a sense of direction. 

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