This free writing program is for veterans, service members, and their adult family members who wish to learn how to use the memoir therapy writing process to overcome past traumatic events and current life’s challenges.
Process & What the Program Includes
We will work with the writer in 3 phases namely:
Psychological Introspection: In this process, we merge Hero’s Journey review and journaling.
Creative Writing: There will be a 1-to-1 manuscript review from a memoir writing teacher for review of the whole manuscript.
Editing: This is the final process where the manuscript is polished.
Each phase takes about 2 weeks. End goal is to have a 50-page memoir.
A Long Way From Home
War is Hell. Anyone who has ever put on a uniform and purposefully went to where the enemy was intent on killing him can attest to that. But instead of a singular definition of Hell that religion preaches, war is so much more. It is Hell on the families left behind. Hell on the mind and spirit. Hell on the nerves. Hell on coming home and trying to remember where you fit in. Yes, war is Hell. A Long Way From Home is the compilation of my experiences in Iraq and Afghanistan from 2002-2006. It gives first hand accounts of some of the most gruesome fighting and a behind the scenes look at what really went on from various levels.
