Join Warrior Writers for a series of workshops to address the myriad experiences of war for Veterans and non-Veterans through the medium of writing. In these workshops you’ll be putting pen to paper to record feelings, memories, traumas, personal histories or whatever comes to mind in the moment. There is no such thing as correct or polished writing, and no previous experience is necessary. We’ll help you keep the pen moving!

Along with writing, the workshops will foster positive relationships between those impacted by war, and develop a deeper understanding and reclaiming of our personal and generational histories. Although the workshops are not therapy, many find this format to be cathartic and useful in the reintegration into society. Many also find the process insightful and validating as you can make sense out of your experience through writing it down.

We recommend participants attend all four sessions if possible. Refreshments will be provided for morning sessions; dinner will be provided for the evening session.

Warrior Writers is a national non-profit whose mission is to create a culture that articulates veterans’ experiences, build a collaborative community for artistic expression, and bear witness to war and the full range of military experiences.
