Express your story with powerful words and bold colors! Reflect, create and connect to your personal story through freestyle, stream of conscious style writing exercises. Each week you will focus on a different theme and have a piece of writing and a piece of art at the end of each session. Create a small chapbook to share. Participants will also have the option to have their work published with other veteran writers in Summer 2018. Open to all veterans. Supplies will be provided.
