Interested in writing? Sign up for our monthly Just Write enewsletter today!

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.

Mining well-rounded and believable characters is probably the most important element in fiction–every action and result depends upon it. Developing unique and complex characters is a process of not only creation, but discovery. In this workshop we’ll introduce a variety of activities that will help the writer do just this, providing a toolbox that will take your fiction to new levels. Dinah Manoff is a Tony award winning actress best known for her roles as Pink Lady Marty Maraschino in the film “Grease” and Carol Weston on TV’s “Empty Nest”. The Real True Hollywood Story of Jackie Gold is her first novel. Warren Read is the author of a memoir The Lyncher in Me and the novel Ash Falls. His latest novel One Simple Thing was recently selected as a notable book by the New York Times.

Instructors: Dinah Manoff and Warren Read. Class meets Friday, September 17 from 2:00-5:000pm, and is $39; click to register. To see the full listing of current Chuckanut Writers classes, click here.

This exciting workshop will be held in person in the Readings Gallery of Village Books.
