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.

Writing short poems is often tougher than writing long poems because poets spend more time on word choice and clarity. Join J.L. Wright for an exploration of some of the short poem forms--we will read examples, analyze them, and move what we learn into our own writing. You'll leave with at least three first draft short poems. J.L. Wright's publications include her books, Unadoptable Joy: A memoir in poetry and prose and Homeless Joy: An expose in poetry and prose. She received her first Sue C. Boynton award in 2020. Her poems have published on four continents.

Instructor: J.L. Wright. Class meets Saturday, May 15 from 10:00am-11:30pm, and is $25; click to register. To see the full listing of current Chuckanut Writers classes, click here.
