With this in mind, The Craft of War Writing will focus on reading war narratives while considering how participants can draft their own stories. Each week, the class will read published pieces in the field of war writing, from classic authors to the most contemporary. In these works, we will seek out elements of craft to help participants arrive at the essentials of writing. Participants will then compose their own short pieces, read each other's work, offer feedback and edits, and suggest revision strategies to help one another realize the vision for his or her own stories, whether fiction or creative nonfiction. Periodic guest authors will also be invited to visit.</p> <p>This writing workshop is free and open to veterans and the general public. No prior writing experience required.</p> <p>The Instructor: Jeremy Warneke is a veteran of the U.S. Army and honorably served in Iraq from 2003 to 2004.
