OPPORTUNITY for VETERANS – Winter-Spring 2016
Come discuss short fiction and memoir written by veterans and select civilians – and write your own.
VOICES FROM WAR – Writing Workshop for Veterans – Season 6 (NYC: Manhattan) *
OPEN HOUSE – Sunday, FEB 7th, 4:00-6:00 pm ▪ RSVP firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
