We are a well-established community writing group for military veterans, active duty service members, and supporters of veterans. Our group started In March of 2010, and we just celebrated our fourth year of successful operation.

NOTE: PLEASE SEE OUR WEBSITE http://wrt.syr.edu/syrvetwriters/.AND FACEBOOK Page (Syracuse Veterans' Writing Group) OR GET ON OUR EMAIL LIST FOR THE MOST UP-TO-DATE INFORMATION. SOMETIMES WE DON'T POST ON MEET-UP REGULARLY.

Calling all Veterans and Active Duty Troops in the Syracuse, NY area: Join the Syracuse area Veterans’ Writing Group that has been in session since March 2010. We meet monthly at the Syracuse University Writing Center on the SU campus. The focus of the group is on writing nonfiction accounts (memoirs, autobiographies) of life in and out of the military. Veterans of all ages, branches of the military, and conflicts are welcome. Supporters of veterans (family members, loved ones) are also welcome. You need not have any prior experience with writing, just a desire to write your stories and share them with others. Join us for a friendly, supportive group. Writing group sessions will focus on:

➢ Learning key techniques for nonfiction writing

➢ Drafting your stories

➢ Sharing your stories and offering feedback to other group members

➢ Encouraging each other as writers.

➢ Polishing and preparing your work for publication.

Group Leaders: Eileen Schell, Associate Professor of Writing, Syracuse University Writing Program, a writing teacher and writing group leader for over 20 years. Ivy Kleinbart, Syracuse University writing instructor and poet.
