SNOHOMISH AND ISLAND COUNTIES: “Write Now” writing series classes begin at Sno-Isle Libraries July 11, 2017.

All the classes are free and subjects range from choosing the right words to choosing the right agent. “We wanted classes that would help aspiring authors get started and accomplished authors get better.”

ANACORTES, WA: Have you dreamed of owning a bookstore? Would you love to work with books and become a vital part of the stimulating and supportive community of Anacortes?  Are you the next owner of Watermark Book Company?

After 35 years of bookselling, the owner of Watermark Book Company has decided it’s time to retire and pursue other passions. The store opened in the fall of 1989 and developed into a highly-regarded independent bookstore with a strong inventory as well as a knowledgeable, experienced staff.  The business is healthy and growing. The future of the bookstore is bright in a community that treasures the arts, poetry, literature, and good bookstores.
