Warrior Writers is hosting a virtual Facilitator Training in October 2021.
Warrior Writers' creative writing workshops offer prompts that cover a variety of military issues and experiences. This encourages sharing stories, opinions, and ideas for productive writing/reflecting/story-telling and art-making. A highlight of these workshops for many veterans is having a space to release bottled-up thoughts and emotions among others who understand, creating a sense of empowerment in the ability to tell their own story. By creating an open and accepting atmosphere, we build a community of support. Workshops are for any service member or veteran regardless of experiences with writing, combat, art, deployment, etc.
Becoming a facilitator means you want to be actively involved in leading national writing workshops or working within your local community to bring Warrior Writers workshops to your area, with the collaboration and support of the national office. All facilitators who lead workshops for the national office will receive payment. Paid opportunities are shared with all facilitators. Selection of facilitators for paid opportunities will be done in a way to ensure diversity, inclusion, fairness, equity, and representation.
Training begins in October, and will take a total of 24 hours spread over several training sessions and workshops, all through Zoom.
