Words After War is proud to announce the launch of our New York veterans writing workshop. Through the gracious support of Mellow Pages Library, a Brooklyn library and reading room located on the Morgan L stop in West Bushwick, we are able to serve the growing population of veteran writers in the borough of Brooklyn. Beginning September 24th and running to November 12th, our New York veteran writing workshops are open to all, veteran and civilian alike.
Similar quality New York writing workshops can range in price from $200 to $400 dollars, but due to a generous donation, we are able to provide our veteran writing workshops at no-cost to the participants. We are extremely grateful for the opportunity to provide veteran writers, their families and their supporters with the highest quality literary instruction, without any out-of-pocket expense.
The workshop will be led by Matt Gallagher, a veteran, writer and educator. Matt is a former Army captain, and he’s the author of the Iraq War memoir Kaboom, and a co-editor of and contributor to Fire and Forget: Short Stories From the Long War, both published by Da Capo Press.
We believe citizens of all stripes read, study and write about war and its aftereffects. Why not you? Join us in September in Brooklyn.
We look forward to working with you soon.
Brandon & Mike & Matt
