Warrior Words: writing workshop for veterans of any U.S. war

The Greater Grand Forks Community Theatre was recently awarded a North Dakota Humanities Council grant to fund “Warrior Words,” a monologue-writing workshop for veterans in four North Dakota cities. Conrad Davidson, Minot State University College of Arts and Sciences dean, will lead the Minot workshop with the first session on Nov. 18 in Hartnett Hall from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Tentatively, the workshop will consist of six sessions.

The workshop is open to veterans of any American war or conflict who have an interest in creating work based on their experiences as soldiers. The three other workshops will be taught by college and university professors in Grand Forks, Bismarck and Dickinson.

“We anticipate that there will be stories about sacrifice, but we also expect to see a blend of humor, as well, as veterans of different generations share stories about their experiences on topics such as drill sergeants and food rations,” said Kathy Coudle-King, The Greater Grand Forks Community Theatre executive director. “The workshop is a way to collect and archive the experiences of veterans living in North Dakota and to bring together service men and women from various generations to craft then share their stories.”

Each participant will have the opportunity to read their monologue before an audience in their workshop city. To enroll in the Minot workshop, veterans can contact Davidson at 858-3159 or
