About the Meetings
The Vancouver Chapter holds monthly meetings for writers in the Vancouver metropolitan area. Members from other chapters are always welcome as are writers new to Willamette Writers.
Unless otherwise stated…
The Vancouver Chapter meets on the third Monday of each month except for December and August.
The Vancouver Chapter is currently meeting online.
Monthly meetings at all the chapters are free for members of Willamette Writers. Nonmembers are invited to offer a donation of $5. None will be turned away.
Thank you for your support!

The Chapter Co-chairs
The Vancouver Chapter is run by two co-chairs who create a program to fit the needs and interests of the Willamette Writers members from the Vancouver area.
Tiffany Dickinson – Vancouver Willamette Writers Co-Chair
A Portland native, Tiffany resides in Longview, WA, with her overlanding-enthusiast husband (a great proofreader), intermittently evil black cat, geriatric King Charles mix, and two nutsy black pugs who are the best snugglers ever.
She’s been part of Willamette Writers since 2017. Her story Sweeter Than Honey won Second Place in the Oregon Writer’s Colony Short Story Contest in 2019 and was published in the 2020 Salal Review. Her haiku, children’s poetry, and a children’s short story have also won or placed in contests. Tiffany has written several feature articles for the Columbia River Reader, and her works-in-progress include middle grade and YA novels.
A former registered nurse, military spouse, and homeschooling mom, she’s seen and heard enough to keep the stories rolling into the next century. She can be bribed with coffee, chocolate, a funny story, or all three.
Find her at www.tiffanydickinson.com, Facebook, Instagram (@tiffanyddickinson), and Twitter (@TiffanyDickins4).
Rebekah Postupak – Vancouver Willamette Writers Co-Chair
Co-chair of WW’s Vancouver Chapter, Rebekah Postupak is out of her mind with delight being back in the PNW, after nearly a dragon’s age skimming across the globe.
In a previous age, she co-founded Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley Writers, wrote regularly for the former Shenandoah Living Magazine, served multiple rounds as a municipal liaison for NaNoWriMo, and crafted (and wrangled!) a weekly, international, multi-year flash fiction community. She’s spoken as guest poet to hundreds of children at various events and red-inked thousands of high school student essays, both of which brought her enormous if disparate degrees of joy.
Her stories have appeared in publications such as From the Depths and Daily Science Fiction, and anthologies such as tdotspec’s March 2022 Strange Wars; as well as locally in events like Vancouver Community Library’s Visions & Voices exhibit.
She is grateful and thrilled to have joined the WW family!
