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.

In this time of isolation and anxiety the mind naturally shifts to thinking about the people that matter, and have mattered most, in our lives. It is also easy to feel unproductive. The goal of this class is to contend with both of those situations. With a series of prompts and exercises focused on generating a series of portraits and elegies, we will write a draft of an entire chapbook. Jeremy Voigt is a poet and educator living in Bellingham. His poems have appeared in Prairie Schooner, Nimrod, and other magazines. His first chapbook was Neither Rising nor Falling from Finishing Line Press.

Instructor: Jeremy Voigt . Class meets Wednesdays, January 20-February 17 from 5:00 - 7:00pm, and is $149; click to register. To see the full listing of current Chuckanut Writers classes, click here.
