Outer Banks Veterans Writing Workshop

The 8th Annual Outer Banks Veterans Writing Workshop HAS BEEN POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.

Beginner and experienced writers are invited to participate in this free two-day workshop.

This year's workshop is specifically geared toward military family members who are interested in creative writing.


Lieutenant Commander Jerri Bell, United States Navy Retired, from the Veterans Writing Project in Washington, DC will lead the two-day workshop.

Modeled after the DC-based Veterans Writing Project, a non-profit foundation that teaches combat Veterans to express their military experiences through literature, the goal of the Outer Banks Veterans Writing Project is to teach enrolled applicants the art of writing. 


A special thank you to SAGA Realty & Construction, Sun Realty, Midgett Insurance Agency, and Twiddy & Company for sponsoring Outer Banks Veterans Week.

Outer Banks Veterans Week is funded in part by the Outer Banks Visitors Bureau.

This project was supported by the North Carolina Arts Council, a division of the Department of Natural and Cultural Resources.
