A Voices from War collaboration. Free writing workshop for veterans and the general public April 2 - June 11 on Saturdays.
Writing starts with reading. With this in mind, The Craft of War Writing will focus on reading war narratives while considering how participants can draft their own stories. Each week, the class will read published pieces in the field of war writing, from classic authors to the most contemporary. In these works, we will seek out elements of craft to help participants arrive at the essentials of writing. Participants will then compose their own short pieces, read each other’s work, offer feedback and edits, and suggest revision strategies to help one another realize the vision for his or her own stories, whether fiction or creative nonfiction. Periodic guest authors will also be invited to visit. Light snacks provided. Prior writing experience not required.
Jeremy Warneke is the instructor. Jeremy is a veteran of the United States Army and honorably served in Iraq from 2003 to 2004.
