Truth or Fiction: An Introduction to Prose for Veterans and Military Families
June 7, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
“So, there I was…”
Ah, the beginning of a great story. We’ve all heard them in some form or another. But what makes a story great?
Is it the delivery? The craft? The scene or characters involved?
Everyone has a story to tell: whether it’s truth, fiction, or somewhere in-between. Learn how to tell yours
by joining us this February for our first workshop of the year. In partnership with Writing Over War: a
project of The Writer’s Garret, this introductory prose workshop will be held once a month at no cost to its
participants! Whether you want to write an op-ed for the newspaper or the next great American novel,
we’ll show the best techniques of prose writing to help you get started!
