Local author leads free writing class on Bainbridge

Local English teacher A.C. Fuller will offer a two-part class at the Bainbridge Island Public Library called “One Year, One Book: From Concept to Finished Book in Twelve Months” this fall.

Fuller said the class is not about commas, characters or story structure. Instead, the course will explore ways to:

• Make time to write in the midst of your busy life;

• Balance “inspiration” and “perspiration”;

• Stick with your writing when it gets tough;

• Work through procrastination and the inner critic;

• Plan and track your work so students can write a book this year.

Classes will be held from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 7 and Nov. 14.

The cost is free, with a $10 suggested donation to benefit The Trillium School. There is no need to register; all are welcome.

Fuller is a writer, editor and English professor. A former adjunct professor of journalism at NYU, his work has been featured in the Register Star, the Poughkeepsie Journal, and New York Newsday. His novel, “The Anonymous Source,” is currently under consideration with agents and editors. He now teaches writing and literature at the Northwest Indian College ( and volunteers at The Trillium School (
