A supper club connecting
Whatcom writers and industry speakers
Online meeting Oct. 14th
Our second meeting for the new year is coming up, like last month details for how to get online will be sent closer to the event itself.
Join us online for Emotional Impact in Story-Telling
When your writing resonates emotionally with readers, it lingers in a deeply personal way. Fiction writer Connie Hampton Connally will share how we can use imagery, interior monologue, and a character's reactions to bring the reader into the heart of a story.
Connie Hampton Connally is a Tacoma fiction writer. Her novel The Songs We Hide, set in communist Hungary, has been praised as “a captivating masterpiece of historical fiction” (Foreword Reviews). An experienced teacher and editor, Connie loves interacting with other writers and helping them sharpen their craft. She has published newspaper articles and magazine stories and is currently writing another novel set in Hungary. She holds a BA in English from the University of Washington and a Master of Fine Arts in creative writing from Antioch University.
New to WWP
Welcome, Pacific Northwest Writers!
We meet every second Wednesday from September to June in scenic Bellingham, WA. Supper starts at 5:30, and the speaker starts at 7:00. Happy hour prices at Nikki's Bella Marina (see map below) apply until 6, if you want a drink to relax while you chat and have dinner upstairs in the Skyline room.
The 2020-2021 year Dues are suspended. Dues are 25 dollars a year or 40 for two years. We use the dues to pay for our speakers to come from around the region, and for an occasional table at local writer events. Our dues year runs from September to June, like our meetings, but will roll over if you pay late in the cycle. If you want to try us out first, feel free. Speakers in the past have included authors Cami Ostman and Robert Dugoni, and agent Donald Maass, covering topics such as social media, self-publishing, memoirs, mixed media, poetry, fiction, and nonfiction. It is our goal to offer something for everyone, no matter your place in the writing journey-- just starting or long-published. Old school or new. If you have an idea for a speaker or topic, let us know, but if it has been covered recently it might not be picked up.
