REMEMBERING 9/11

9/11, and all of those so deeply impacted, is on our minds each year at this time. You can read remarks from Voices From War founder Kara Krauze on the 20th anniversary last year…

HERE
2022: 21 years


Literature and the act of writing, our own stories and others, brought from the shadows, given voice instead of silence, offer opportunities for community, for grace and personal insight, for discussion and shared understanding. The darkest and most difficult realities multiply through silence, whereas giving voice — searching for words, for narrative, for structure from fragments — increases resilience, diminishes shame, and offers opportunities for artistic creation, dialogue, and connection.

You can learn more about our instructors on the Instructors page and check out previous Newsletters HERE.

We are thrilled to have SIOBHAN ADCOCK return to the Voices From War 14Y classroom, with JEREMY WARNEKE continuing in the Bronx (remote) classroom, and welcoming  DUNCAN MURRELL as he joins the Voices From War team!

A Happy Thanksgiving to all. We are grateful for our Voices From War community.

Guest Author, Elizabeth Lewes, This Sunday, OCT 25

Sunday, OCTOBER 25, 5:00 pm (EST)

Join Voices From War this Sunday for a Reading & Discussion with veteran Elizabeth Lewes, author of LITTLE FALLS.

REGISTRATION FREE on EVENTBRITE (Click HERE)

OCTOBER 25th – READING & DISCUSSION with ELIZABETH LEWES

Voices From War, offering writing workshops for veterans and public events since 2013, is pleased to welcome veteran and writer Elizabeth Lewes to read from her debut novel LITTLE FALLS, a mystery set in Eastern Washington State, where Sergeant Camille Waresch returns after deployment to Iraq and Afghanistan. Elizabeth Lewes expertly threads together this taut narrative unraveling the mystery of a small town murder,  difficulties of parenthood, and complicated memories of war.

Publishers Weekly praised Lewes’ “outstanding debut”  with its “tight, well-constructed plot” and “searing portrait of Camille as she deals with the guilt she feels over her daughter and her general rage at the world.”

Reading will be followed by discussion (moderator Kara Krauze, Voices From War founder) about writing, PTSD, and veteran experiences, followed by questions from workshop participants and our audience.

We hope you can join us on October 25th!

All Voices From War programming is currently taking place remotely on Zoom.
