A Healing Opportunity for Local Female Veterans
Returning Veterans Project, with Wise Counsel and Comfort and Well Arts Institute are inviting women to continue their healing through a process of writing and performance.
During 10 weeks of writing, the participants will explore their experiences during safe nurturing writing workshops led by experienced Well Arts facilitators who will share theatre writing tools and techniques through a framework in which the participants’ stories can be told. After the 10 weeks of writing, with input and approval from the writers, their stories will be combined and edited into a final script. Well Arts will then hire professional theater artists (directors, actors, designers) to present staged readings.
We are currently looking for people who would like to participate in this ambitious project.
Wise Counsel and Comfort, who will be co-producing the project, will have qualified staff available throughout the process to support the writers as they bring their experiences from page to stage.
Interested writers should contact Lynne Nesbit by email at: firstname.lastname@example.org

Facilitated and Directed by

“This show is worth your time whether or not you have any experience with disabilities–perhaps even more so if you don’t. Why? Because it will change the way you see disability when you encounter it. These women tell their stories not in a plea for sympathy, but for simple understanding, and as with all great art, these stories make you see things in a new way.”
