Methodist University's Veterans Writing Collective will host the production of Deployed on Sunday, Oct. 19 at 2 p.m. in Huff Concert Hall at Reeves Fine Art Building. The play tells stories of war through the words of veterans including poems, essays, and diary excerpts. They describe the pressures of preparing for war, deployment, and battle. Words by the late NC playwright and novelist Paul Green frame the beginning and end. The event is free and open to the public.
The mission of the Veterans Writing Collective is to encourage the art of writing and to provide a workshop environment in which participants offer honest, positive feedback on members' writing. The group is open to writers of all genres—including poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction, memoir, drama, and journaling—and is open to all active-duty military, veterans, and family members.
We are also excited about upcoming publishing opportunities. Allison Williams, editor of Elite Magazine, has generously agreed to devote an entire issue of Elite Magazine to our group's writing. Additionally, group members will be able to read their published pieces as part of next year's Southern Writers Symposium.
