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.

Join J.L. Wright for a discussion focused on strategies for self-editing poetry as well as the workshop method. We will review five editing and revision strategies for poetry as well as participate in breakout sessions to workshop a poem. Please bring one or two original poems you would like to revise toward publication quality. 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 22 from 10;00am-11:30am, and is $25; click to register. To see the full listing of current Chuckanut Writers classes, click here.
