Colorado Humanities continues a conversational series in collaboration with the Denver Veterans Writing Workshop this week in Denver.
The three-part event series focuses on the “experiences of war and reintegration at home upon return,” and features the personal experiences of veterans from the anthology Still Coming Home: Denver Veterans Writing.
Jason Arment and Steven Dunn, veterans and editors of the anthology, started Veteran Writing Workshop in 2016. What began as a volunteer project, became the genesis of “a sincere effort to tell their stories in the most vulnerable and honest way that they could.”
Colorado Humanities, a non-profit organization, created Still Coming Home: Conversations about the Experience of War series to “spark conversation” and provide local veterans with a safe space to connect to their communities, according to the group’s website.
In an interview, Bess Maher, Veterans Writing Program Coordinator, said she hopes to provide an opportunity for civilians to “try to understand the challenges that are created” for veterans after military service.
Each part of the three-part conversation series will feature at least one of the published authors.
Also, people who attend will receive their own copy of Still Coming Home: Denver Veterans Writing to follow along.
Still Coming Home: Conversations about the Experience of War is open to the public across the Denver metro area. The next event will be held tomorrow at the Spring Institute in Denver from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.
