Creative Writing INDOC: Putting Military Stories on the Page
About this Event
Learn everything you need to know to start sharing stories with The Muse Writers Center. As a member of the United States military, you are bound to have many unique experiences. Rather than trying to explain to someone that they “had to have been there,” learn the skill of creative writing and put your stories on the page so they can come alive and be experienced by every reader. Learn the practical basics or sharpen your skills with the help of a Muse teacher, veteran and seasoned writer.
The class is free for all active duty, veterans, family, and caregivers of the U.S. Armed Forces. This workshop and others made possible in part through the National Endowment for the Arts.
