Voices from War is now accepting applications for their Spring 2022 Workshops.
In these workshops participants will:
Learn from published writers and fellow veterans and family members
Read engaging fiction, memoir, essays, and poetry on the subject of war
Discuss practical strategies and create deeper content for writing the stories and poetry that express your vision and/or experiences
Add to a more diverse representation of veteran stories
Participate in a community of diverse, veteran & military family #writers
The Writing and Reading War Stories Workshop will run Wednesdays from February 23rd through May 11th (10 sessions), 7-9pm EST.
In this workshop, participants will write their own narratives while reading excerpted fiction and nonfiction by veterans, military spouses, and select civilians. Each week, the group will share student work, learning from each other's strengths and successes while also discussing ways participants can come closer to the stories they want to tell.
Intructors: Nina Semczuk & Timothy Kudo
The Craft of War Writing Workshop will run Saturdays from February 26th through May 7th (6 sessions), 12:30-2:30pm EST.
Writing starts with reading. With this in mind, The Craft of War Writing focuses on reading war narratives while considering how participants can draft their own stories. Each week, the class reads published pieces in the field of war writing, from classic authors to the most contemporary. In these works, participants will seek out elements of craft to help arrive at the essentials of writing. Participants are then encouraged to 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 their own writing, whether fiction, poetry, or creative nonfiction.
