Writing in the Military Gaze

This course is designed for writers of all genres who create in the military gaze, writing about war, its impact, and military service. Too often, silence often goes hand in hand with these subjects to maintain "peace" in times of chaos. For military veterans, family members, and friends, the risk of speaking to our experiences is great. In this workshop, participants will read and discuss daring work, then respond to prompts and share their work, if they wish, in a supportive environment.

This class is offered with sliding scale, pay-what-you-can pricing. Select the price you'd like to pay from the drop-down menu on the left.
