Whether you’re just thinking about getting some of your experiences down on paper, or have already been writing, join us for 10 Sessions (Manhattan) or 6 sessions in the Bronx 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. Voices From War has been running writing workshops for veterans (and family members) since 2013.  All levels welcome.
Thank you to all of our participants, instructors, and supporters for our Fall 2018 season!

NEW and Continued SUPPORT

We are thrilled to have received new support in 2017 from the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council and Amazon Literary Partnership, and we are so grateful for continued support from Poets & Writers and The Rona Jaffe Foundation!

More instructors! Two new Teaching Associates joined us this past year, Nina Semczuk (teaching with Kara Krauze) in Manhattan and John LoSasso (teaching with Jeremy Warneke) in the Bronx. We are thrilled to have both of them moving to co-Instructor in 2018! And we welcome another new Instructor, Scott Reel, to the 14th Street Y workshop for Winter-Spring 2018!

More workshop opportunities – coming soon! We are excited to be planning toward a new mini-workshop effort with particular attention to issues affecting veterans and the broader community. Through our new pilot Voices Initiatives we will strive to bring together engaged veterans and non-veterans with shared stake in a common theme. We are looking at Disability and Diversity for our pilot programming themes.

Stay tuned and stop by the website for more updates, new bios, upcoming 2018 REGISTRATION and MORE!
