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.

This class is for writers of any genre who wish to explore the use of "colorful" language. With splatterpunk, fake news, and Instagram tirades, the use of "four letter words" has become part of our daily language. But how much is too much? The object of this class is to discuss pejorative language from etymology to usage. Is it necessary in developing character, setting, and plot? Most importantly, we will discuss the impact of these word choices on the audience. Explicit words will be discussed! Mature adults only!

Instructor: J. L. Wright. Class meets Wednesday, March 21 from 10:30am-12pm, and is $25; click to register. To see the full listing of current Chuckanut Writers classes, click here.
