Writing and Reading War Stories in the 21st Century

In this workshop we write our own narratives, while reading excerpted fiction and non-fiction by veterans, military spouses, and select civilians.  Each week, we share student work, learning from each others’ strengths and successes, while also discussing ways we can come closer to the stories we want to tell, whether just for ourselves or for a larger audience.  The course is team-taught by two writers, a civilian and a veteran.

“If you succeed [in storytelling], you replace the fragments of memory with something that has its own shape and meaning, a separate thing that has value in itself.”     
                     - Tracy Kidder & Richard Todd

This is a free workshop for veterans.

Prior writing experience not required.
