This Thursday will be the first of three meetings at the University of the Pacific’s Stockton campus. Dr. Camille Norton, a published poet and professor at Pacific, and myself will be leading a writing circle for veterans. It is absolutely free to veterans and surviving family members. Many people are dealing with the trauma of war, and I have found that writing is a very effective response to this trauma. Also, I realize that soldiers are not the only ones who endure suffering as a result of war. Dr. Norton and I hope that this will be a way to reach out to the community, especially the veterans and their families.
Here are the details:
When: June 24th, July 1st and July 8th meetings will be from 7:30pm to 9pm
Where: Room 119 Wendell Phillips Center
What: Writing circle for Veterans and Survivors of War
I hope that you will participate if you live in the Central Valley area. This should be a fun and exciting experience for everyone involved.
Hope to see you there,
