I hope this message finds you well! My name is Isaura Ramirez (US Army, Ret.), and I am the Hampton Roads Regional Director for the Armed Services Arts Partnership (formerly the W&M Center for Veterans Engagement). We create and sustain communities in the expressive arts at no cost to veterans and military families. This fall, we are teaming up with the Virginia War Memorial to offer a 10 week, university-level creative writing class for the veterans and military families of Hampton Roads. I would greatly appreciate your support in sharing the blurb below and attached one-pager across your networks of veterans and military families.
