FREE Truth and Risk: Writing in the Military Gaze [Abby Murray]
Writers of all genres have been truth-telling under the threat of silence or harm for centuries. But it’s even more dangerous — and more important — when the truth concerns power, and the most powerful force for military families is the military itself. How can we tell the necessary truth about our world even at great personal or communal risk? In this workshop, participants will read, reflect on, and discuss the work of daring writers, particularly women, who write with direct and indirect ties to the military and war. We will use this reflection to respond to prompts and share our work. Participants with personal connections to the military are especially encouraged to attend.
Registration for this class will open August 17th.
