Project Description

Veterans Writing

Our Veterans Writing Workshops offer a safe place for veterans to create, share, and receive feedback on their writing. Whenever possible, workshops are led by veterans who are professional writers. Local partners provide venue and outreach support.

Previous writing experience is not necessary, and writing workshops can be offered at any level:

Transformational writing workshops help people recover from trauma and generate rough drafts

Creative writing workshops inspire expression

Professional-level workshops help writers prepare their work for the public

In our Arts in Society award-winning Denver program, Colorado Humanities published a book collecting work by workshop participants, paid its authors and editors, and facilitated a Denver metro-wide reading and conversation series.

We look forward to working with you and other potential partners in your community to design a program that best serves your needs.
