Under the auspices of the nationally acclaimed Warrior Writers Project, this workshop provides a safe space for participants to tell their stories.  No previous writing experience is necessary. 

The workshops are offered and tailored to three groups:

Facilitators are nationally certified.  The workshops are offered as a hybrid: that is, both on-line and Face to Face.

All materials and texts are provided.  Every session includes a check in and readings.  Writing prompts launch each exercise, and sharing is encouraged.  The goal of the workshop is for each participant to write about service-related experiences.

There is a performance option.  Participants can either choose to read/perform their own work or have a community member participate in their place.  This helps create a culture that articulates veterans’ experiences, builds a collaborative community and bears witness to war and the full range of military experience.

Women’s Warrior Writers

Come join a community of females – military members, active duty, veterans, daughters and spouses of, other family members and other women interested in or that work within the field of military members-exploring the world of the military life, through the lens of US – the female!  We will explore various writing prompts, songs, photos, have an opportunity to discuss as a group; and then, we will take time to write individually off these – or to free write. We will share sacred space by speaking aloud, if so desired, what we wrote with each other.  This is a time to be HEARD – not to be criticized or feel shame.  We come together to learn, develop and grow from each other for a stronger, healthier more loving community.

It is suggested that you attend all six sessions – every Wednesday from 6 p.m. until 8 p.m., beginning on November 3rd, 2021; however, you may attend as little as one session if you’d like 🙂  All sessions are held both in-person at the Hudson Valley National Center for Veteran Reintegration (HVNCVR) or on zoom.
