Writing Across The Civil-Military Divide: Fiction

Part of Writing Across Civil-Military Divide, a series of workshops and lectures.

2-Part Workshop
 April 15th and 22nd, 6-8 pm

Marine veteran and fiction writer Phil Klay writes that “Believing war is beyond words is an abrogation of responsibility — it lets civilians off the hook from trying to understand, and veterans off the hook from needing to explain.” In this workshop, we’ll explore how fiction has been used to explain experiences of war (both abroad and at home) and make our own efforts at using fiction to both explain and understand the civil-military divide.

Location: SLCC Redwood Campus, AAB 135. 

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.
