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.

Eco-poetry is poetry that bears witness to the interrelatedness and interdependence of all elements of the natural world, including human society. Using this perspective, we'll give voice to, and celebrate, non-human intelligence to create poetry that is surprising, lively, and expansive. With new exercises and handouts, this class is for both those who took Kevin's earlier eco-poetry class and those who did not. Kevin Murphy is "poet-in-residence" for the Chuckanut Radio Hour and a 2017 winner of a Bellingham Mayor's Arts Award.

Instructor: Kevin Murphy. Class meets Saturdays, Feb. 24-Mar. 10 from 10am-12pm, and is $95; click to register. To see the full listing of current Chuckanut Writers classes, click here.
