Voices From War…
Offers opportunities for expressing experiences of war through writing workshops for veterans with attention to individual stories, existing literature, and craft…
Builds community among veterans…
Builds bridges of experience and expression between veterans and civilians by creating and nurturing wider opportunities for diverse dialogue and events…

Voices From War‘s
Writing and Reading War Stories in the 21st Century
In this workshop we write our own narratives, while reading excerpted fiction and non-fiction by veterans, military spouses, and select civilians. Each week, we share student work, learning from each others’ strengths and successes, while also discussing ways we can come closer to the stories we want to tell, whether just for ourselves or for a larger audience. The course is team-taught by two writers, a civilian and a veteran.
This is a free workshop for veterans.
We could use YOUR support! Contact us about getting involved…
as a sponsor, partner, donor, or volunteer.
* Voices From War is a sponsored project of Fractured Atlas, a non-profit arts service organization. Please visit the sidebar or bottom of this page for details and to make a secure online donation. *
♦♦ Check back for more information about our first Voices from War literary journal and future NYC Reading dates. We look forward to introducing more readers to these talented writers! ♦♦
