A three-part series introducing creative non-fiction memoir writing for veterans, family members, and others affected by war. Often veterans never tell the stories that burn in their hearts. Join us as we write, edit and create our work through a process of constructive critique, a journey of enrichment, setting our stories to paper and bringing them to life. Novice and seasoned writers are welcome. Ages 18+
Facilitated by Dan New
