Writeface Veterans Writing Group Announces Summer Classes
May 31, 2016 10:41PM
Writeface, a nonprofit organization based in Lancaster County, provides venues for the voices of veterans, creating a healthier spirit within them, their families and communities. Summer writing classes are currently forming.
For two years, co-founders Scott Hower, a Vietnam Veteran, and Annie Ginder, a certified Journal To The Self instructor, have been working with veterans, ages 26 to 80, using various forms of writing to help them explore their inner landscapes in a safe, non-judgmental environment.
Employing specific journaling techniques, creative and expressive writing exercises and standard literary devices, Writeface gives veterans a place to explore their own thoughts and a space for them to express those thoughts in their own voice.
The camaraderie within the writing groups is similar to the bonds formed on the battlefield, and often is what is truly missed when a veteran returns and tries to reintegrate into civilian life.
