Project Description

Would you like to be able to tell your story?

Studies shows that the ability to manage your life through your story increases overall wellness. Our Veterans Writing Workshops offer a safe place for veterans, their family members, and caregivers to write about their experiences. These workshops provide participants the opportunity to create, share, and receive feedback on their writing. They are led by veterans who are professional writers. Adult military-affiliated family members, caregivers, veterans, and active service members are welcome. Previous writing experience is not necessary.

Our Calendar

We are taking a summer break from the Veterans Writing Workshops and will return in the fall.

Routt County veteran writers are invited to apply to lead a local, in-person workshop beginning Fall 2021. Download position announcement here and submit your application to with the subject line: Veterans Writing Workshop Leader.

Creative, Expressive and Professional Writing Workshops

Creative writing workshops inspire writing that engages with the artistry of language.

Expressive writing workshops provide support for a deeply private and healing writing practice.

Professional-level workshops help you prepare your work to share with family, friends, or the public. These workshops offer a safe place to receive feedback on your writing.

Participants in Expressive Writing studies showed improved immune-system functioning (as evidenced by increased lymphocyte response) and faster wound healing.
