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.

Do you ramble on when you could be more concise? Are exclamation points your favorite punctuation mark? What about verbiage--is there one word you could use to replace three or four? Do you really need a paragraph to explain something that can be said in a few sentences? Never again fear limiting word-counts or comments like, "Please simplify this." You'll learn to spot excessive wording, redundancy, and over-punctuation along with other tight-writing gems.

Heather founded and ran an arts, culture and lifestyle magazine from 2005-2015. In 2018 she started HL Creatives in Bellingham, "turning writers into authors". Heather's schooling is through Simon Fraser University and various workshops for writers and editors.

Instructor: Heather Lea. Class meets Thursdays, November 5-19 from 6:30 - 8:00pm, and is $75; click to register. To see the full listing of current Chuckanut Writers classes, click here.
