Writing Across The Civil-Military Divide: Memoir

2-Part Workshop
Saturdays February 22nd and 29th, 1-3 pm

As human beings, we connect with each other through story. We read and write to help us make sense of our own lives. There is a strong tradition of veterans’ stories being shared through memoir. From Robert Graves’ WWI memoir Goodbye to All That to Marcus Luttrell’s Lone Survivor, military memoir has worked to help veterans connect, to each other and the public, through story. In this workshop, we’ll write and read memoir and other forms of creative non-fiction towards making sense of contemporary military experiences.

Location: CWC, 210 East 400 South #8
Cost: Free. registration is required.


Writing Across the Civil-Military Divide is a series of lectures and writing workshops that aim to help veterans’ stories be seen by the American public. Participants, both veterans and civilians, will come together to explore and write literary fiction and memoir related to experiences with the civil-military divide, culminating in a publication of their own writing on the topic.
