QUICK NEWS & UPDATES

A READING!
  • 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!)

PUBLICATION!
  • 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.
