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.

Pressure is at the heart of any great story, but sometimes we instinctively protect our characters. Join instructor Becky Mandelbaum and learn to create a scene that keeps your reader turning the page. We'll look at how to increase narrative tension by applying pressure through plot, interiority, pacing, and more, taking guidance from examples in contemporary fiction and famous fairy tales. All participants will have a chance to workshop their writing. Becky has published two books including the recent novel, The Bright Side Sanctuary for Animals, and her work has appeared in numerous literary magazines.

Instructor: Becky Mandelbaum. Class meets Wednesdays, December 1, 8, and 15, from 6:30-8:30pm, and is $99; click to register. To see the full listing of current Chuckanut Writers classes, click here
