The WGI and Wounded Warrior Project have had many writing workshops for veterans, wounded warriors and family and medical caregivers. (A brief history of our relationship with Wounded Warriors can be found here.)
These workshops offer veterans and caregivers the opportunity to explore self-expression and creativity through writing. Over the course of two weekends set approximately six months apart, participants explore storytelling in all its forms with professional writing mentors. Vets and Caregivers attend separate workshops. These workshops have been held in New York, San Antonio, Denver, Seattle and Landsthul, Germany.
