From “why we write” to “how to write” and then “write,” the Red Badge Project helps veterans tell their stories.  

Free workshops are being held at the Walla Walla Public Library, 238 E. Alder St., for three weeks on Fridays and Saturdays. They began on June 14. Friday workshops are from 2-4 p.m. and 6-8 p.m., and Saturday workshops are from 10 a.m.-noon and 1-3 p.m.  

Shawn Wong will lead the “Write” workshops Friday and Saturday, showing student storytellers how characters work on the page and as surrogates for ourselves. They also learn to make their tales universally accessible while sincerely personal.

To register, call Library Director Beth Hudson at 524-4433 or bhudson@wallawallawa.gov or contact your VA health team.
