    Warrior Writers Virtual Workshop

    Attend the Warrior Writers Virtual Workshop on August 12, 7-9pm (EST). This generative creative writing workshop will 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, Warrior Writers build a community of support. Workshops are for any service member or veteran regardless of experiences with writing, combat, art, deployment, etc.

    Register here. This class is led by Warrior Writers poet/playwright/actor Jeff Key, based between New Orleans and LA.
