The Chattahoochee Review will hold a Summer workshop for new and returning “Writing the Veteran Experience” participants on GPC’s Dunwoody Campus, Tuesday, July 8, from 6-8 p.m., in room A 2110.
The free workshop is designed for participants to write about their own experiences of military service or to share stories of the impact on their lives of others’ service. Although the main participants in this session will include returning vets from our Spring session, the workshop welcomes participation from GPC students who are ASMs, OIF vets, and/or OEF vets. GPC alumni, faculty, staff, the general public, and members of student veteran organizations attending other colleges and universities are also welcome to attend.
Prior writing experience is not required; however, since returning participants will bring drafts or completed compositions to share with the group this session, new participants are encouraged to bring creative work as well. All GPC student compositions will receive consideration for inclusion in GPC’s award-winning student publications. Editor Anna Schachner and managing editor Lydia Ship will facilitate the workshop.
