Women Veterans’ Wartime Memoirs: A Writing Workshop

Women veterans of all ages are invited to join this free memoir-writing workshop designed to help them craft their military stories through prose or poetry. Led by Shari Wagner, a published writer and instructor for the Indiana Writers Center, each two-hour session will include prompts and models, in-class writing activities, discussion, and feedback. Women at all levels of writing experience are welcome. It’s only necessary that they have the desire to develop their writing skills and share their stories. The best work from each veteran will be published in a book by the Indiana Writers Center and celebrated at a public reading in April.

This 12-session class, running from October 2015 until March 2016, will meet the first and third Tuesdays of each month, from 1:30-3:30Vonn_WomenVetWorkshop_TW (4) p.m., at the Kurt Vonnegut Memorial Library, 304 N. Senate Avenue, Indianapolis, IN 46204.
