Voices From War’s FALL 2021 SEASON – Starts THIS WEEK!
WEDNESDAY or SATURDAY
Join us this fall to explore diverse forms of storytelling (through fiction, memoir, poetry), discuss, and work on your own writing. Each season, we welcome recent veterans and those who served years prior, active duty and family members. Come work on your writing in a supportive veteran-focused community, explore your experiences and others, and enhance your writing skills, whether a new writer, or one revising previous work. QUESTIONS? Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Voices From War has been offering writing workshops for veterans (and family members) since 2013, with two workshop options through the FALL season (Wednesday or Saturday).

We are thrilled to welcome two new Instructors DEWAINE FARRIA and JESSICA DULONG!
Dewaine Farria is the author of the novel Revolutions of All Colors (winner of the 2019 Veterans Writing Award from Syracuse University Press). His short stories and essays have appeared in Literary Hub, The New York Times, Rumpus, the anthology, Our Best War Stories, and elsewhere.
On this Giving Tuesday, we want to take a moment to thank all of those who give back through Voices From War year round, as well as those of you who are able to make a donation.
We rely upon passion and dedication from volunteers, our supporters, our participants, and our leadership and instructors, all of us giving to Voices From War because we see the power of veteran stories and community. Writing helps us to better understand, grapple with, and accept our experiences – each of us, as individuals – and writing brings us together. Writing bonds veterans with each other, and brings together veterans and civilians through the power of shared experience, narrative, and the conversations writing and reading generate.
We see this every week in the classroom, a dozen people around a table, and we see it in conversations online and offline. We see it in the interest of civilians in hearing from veterans; and we see the import of veteran stories shared, with not only those who already understand, but also those who might not yet. In the process, we find unexpected commonalities, alongside differences.
Thank you to all of our supporters and volunteers. Thank you to our fantastic instructors, Nate Bethea, with whom I’ve had the pleasure and good fortune of teaching alongside these past two years at the 14th Street Y, and Jeremy Warneke, who has become a powerful force teaching our Bronx collaboration, The Craft of War Writing.
We cannot do any of this without you – our participants and our supporters and our volunteers, our dedicated instructors, and our contributors.
Thank you to our audience for giving your time and attention, and thank you for those who can make a donation to help support Voices From War’s ongoing programming!
Your voices matter.
