Village Books is pleased to join forces with Whatcom Writers and Publishers to co-host their monthly virtual supper club. This month we'll feature Anneliese Kamola and Cami Ostman!
Each month on the second Wednesday, we host a guest author or explore a new topic to connect Whatcom Writers and industry speakers.
Join us for a talk from the Narrative Project!
Cami and Anni will share some of their methods for ensuring that authors complete their book projects, including addressing self-doubt and creating space for writing and developing a support network. They will also give details about a free writing conference coming up in January.
