Veterans For Peace is partnering with Warrior Writers in advance of our annual convention!
Led by Warrior Writers trained facilitators and artists, these 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. 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. These workshops are about just getting that pen to paper and using the creative process to explore and express experiences. Prompts may include writings, visual art, music, or video clips, and will center on the topics of reintegration and how to engage in creating a culture of peace.
There is an opportunity to share the pieces you create during this workshop at a reading during the Veterans For Peace 2021 Online Convention! The Poetry and Song Soiree will take place during the convention on Friday, August 14th at 9:30pm ET. Sharing your work is not required to participate in the writing workshop, but we are excited to be able to offer this opportunity for those who would like to read!Register here!
