Writing for Military Families Open to active duty and veteran military personnel and military family members. The Writing for Military Families course will offer opportunities to explore writing about the life experiences of military families. This could include the effects of war, the benefits and effects of that lifestyle, and much more. We will establish an open sharing space in the classroom, a safe atmosphere for writing about not only war experiences but also about the personal lives of military families who have a wide variety of experiences and backgrounds. Styles of writing can be nonfiction, fiction, and/or poetry. Styles can be drama, suspense, humor, free verse, narrative, personal journaling etc. Participants may consider experimenting with different styles of writing. Students will learn writing strategies and use different writing prompts and challenges in order to help them create work that speaks about and to their experiences. Some of the classroom time will be used to share work, and students will be offered a chance to voluntarily practice reading aloud to an audience.
This is not a grammar course, and students should have an understanding of English language and usage. This course is for creative writing development. If you have a manuscript-in-progress, bring it with you to the first class. If requested, students can receive critical feedback about how to improve your writing.
