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…

 

“If you succeed [in storytelling], you replace the fragments of memory with something that has its own shape and meaning, a separate thing that has value in itself.”     
                     - Tracy Kidder & Richard Todd
Spring 2019  ▪  NYC Season 12  ▪  Starts FEB 27

Voices From War‘s

Writing Workshop for Veterans        image


 

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.

  1. I live in Illinois and cannot attend a workshop. Is there a webinar plan for future workshops? Also, do I have to attend a workshop in order to submit my work for consideration?

    Thanks
