Virtual Creative Writing Workshop for Military, Veterans and Spouses.

About this event

Back by popular demand! It's time to tell your story. Join author Laura Van Prooyen for a virtual creative writing workshop. She's led workshops in the past with veterans, service members, military spouses, caregivers, health care workers, and university students, so you won't want to miss this!

Writing is a powerful tool for communication, self-discovery, and reflection. Together over Zoom, we’ll read a short piece of writing, see what makes it work, and use it to enter into our own stories.

No writing experience required—if you can talk, you can write.
