2019 Calendar of Events

March 28-29-30. Portland, OR. Association of Writers and Writing Programs (AWP 2018). As usual, we’ll have a table where you can come by and meet us, grab a copy of Writing War: A Guide to Telling Your Own Story, or our literary journal O-Dark-Thirty. You’ll also find books by our editors and instructors for sale.

May 4-5. Outer Banks, NC. We’re working with the North Carolina and Dare County Arts Councils to present our first-ever songwriting workshop. Expect two-days of discussion and play focussed on the elements of the craft of songwriting including melody, harmony, song structure, lyrics, and more. This is a hands on workshop, so bring your (acoustic) instrument like a guitar or ukulele. But even if you don’t play an instrument, you’re still welcome to join. To register, contact Chris Sawin of the Dare County Arts Council at dareartsinfo@gmail.com.

Summer 2019. Washington, DC. Our second songwriting workshop. This one at the DC VA Medical Center. Stay tuned (see what we did there?) for more info but you can expect a two-day workshop on the elements of the craft of songwriting including song structure, lyrics, and more.

Summer 2019. Howard County, MD. We’ll run a six-week creative writing workshop at the Ellicott City public library led by Dario DiBattista. Info: ron@veteranswriting.org.

Fall 2019. Grand Rapids, MI. Our director, Ron Capps, will lead a workshop for the winners of the Department of Veterans Affairs national creative arts writing competition.
