Facilitated by Jessi Atherton and Portia Simmons, this generative creative writing workshop will 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. A highlight of these workshops for many veterans is having a space to release bottled-up thoughts and emotions among others who understand, creating a sense of empowerment in the ability to tell their own story. By creating an open and accepting atmosphere, we build a community of support. This workshop is for any veterans who identify as women, regardless of experiences with writing, combat, art, deployment, etc.

This workshop takes place Monday, June 21st, at 6pm ET.
