Veterans Writing Workshops offer a safe place for veterans, their adult family members and caregivers to write and talk about their experiences. To help connect veterans with each other and continue providing these workshops, Colorado Humanities is offering three types of online writing workshops in May.
The Writing for Publication and Lunch & Learn workshops provide participants the opportunity to create, share and receive feedback on their writing. Expressive writing provides support for a deeply private journaling process proven to reduce stress.
All are led by veterans who are professional writers, and all are free, thanks to partners and sponsors Mt. Carmel Veterans Service Center, Arts in Society, the National Endowment for the Humanities, and Steamboat Creates.
