QUICK NEWS & UPDATES
- TWO Voices From War veteran-writers recently read new work at The On and Off Series at Over the Eight in Brooklyn! It was wonderful to hear exciting fiction and non-fiction from Mario Bonifacio and Jeremy Warneke! Thanks to hosts Daniel Zee Husson and Mx Bean for their wonderful reading series – and check back on their FB page for more upcoming readings! (And if our pictures aren’t too blurry, we’ll post some of those soon too!)
- Jeremy Warneke, a prior Voices From War participant (and valued member of the veteran-writing community, plus upcoming instructor) recently had an important essay published by Task & Purpose. Jeremy shares some of his own experiences along with research about the under-discussed topic of accidental deaths in the military.
THE NEW YORK TIMES!
- If you missed VOICES FROM WAR leader and co-instructor NATE BETHEA‘s recent Op-Ed in the New York Times, be sure to check it out now. Well reasoned, thoughtful, emotionally powerful, and fantastically written, “The Truth About PTSD” is a Don’t Miss for veterans and civilians, whether familiar with experiences of post-traumatic stress (PTSD) or new to its effects.
If you missed all of our exciting DECEMBER NEWS, be sure to stop by the website!
(We’re working to get our fall Newsletters posted on the blog page!)
HOPE to see you for the VOICES FROM WAR OPEN HOUSE on SUNDAY!

VOICES FROM WAR – Writing Workshop for Veterans – Season 6 (NYC: Manhattan) *
OPEN HOUSE – Sunday, FEB 7th, 4:00-6:00 pm ▪ RSVP email@example.com
Workshops: TUES., FEB 23rd–MAY 24th ▪ Registration Open ▪ VoicesFromWar.org
Whether you’re just thinking about getting some of your experiences down on paper, or have already been writing, join us on 10 Tuesdays at 7pm (February to May) for stories, community, and new skills.
Our stories aren’t always easy to share or explain. In this workshop, we talk about techniques for getting started and for moving forward. Maybe you want to find ways to explain military experience, including combat, to family and friends. Or you may be interested in publication, and want to explore possibilities for sharing fiction or true experiences with a wider audience.
Join fellow veterans in a friendly community this spring for Voices From War’s writing workshop for veterans hosted by the 14th Street Y (344 E. 14th St., near Union Square).
Voices From War has been running writing workshops for veterans since 2013. All levels welcome.
QUESTIONS? Email firstname.lastname@example.org
Inquiries from interested family members also welcome.
