In this workshop, we’ll write and read memoir and other forms of creative non-fiction towards making sense of contemporary military experiences.Location: CWC, 210 East 400 South #8Writing Across the Civil-Military Divide is a series of lectures and writing workshops that aim to help veterans’ stories be seen by the American public.
