FSU’s Center for Creative Writing to Offer Writing Workshop for Veterans
12/11/2009

Frostburg State University Center for Creative Writing will offer an opportunity just for veterans, a chance to participate in a mixed-genre creative writing workshop. The workshop, which is open to student veterans and veterans in the local community, is free and requires no purchase of materials. The workshop will meet on Wednesdays from Feb. 3 to May 5 from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Center’s home in the Lyric Building on Main Street in Frostburg.

The workshop will be led by local veteran and writer Clint Garner. The focus of the workshop will be to equip participants with some basic writing skills, tools and resources. Participants will discuss basic components and conventions of all three major creative writing genres (non-fiction, fiction and poetry), read successful works from each genre by veterans from various eras and discuss what makes them work and write original works of each genre. Participants will also have the chance to receive feedback from classmates and the instructor.

“Our hope is to provide interested veterans with an avenue for meaningful and productive expression.” Garner says.

For more information about the workshop or the FSU Center for Creative Writing, contact Garner at cwgarner0@frostburg.edu or call 301-687-4024.
