To note, Major Ketcherside may have finished his last deployment as an active duty Marine, but his service continues without pause at home—with hours and hours of volunteer work at Soldiers Memorial alone to his credit.

Veterans Writing Workshop

Veterans Writing Workshop:  Writing After War

Every Second and Fourth Saturday  May 10 - December 13 • 10 a.m.-Noon

St. Louis Central Library Training Room

We all have stories to tell, especially those who have seen the face of war, both on the battlefield and on the homefront.

To help returning veterans (from all services and eras), current active duty personnel, and family members adjust to life after war, the Library is hosting an eight-month writing workshop.

Professional writers from the St. Louis area conduct workshops for those interested in writing fiction, poetry, and nonfiction related to their time in military service. Plus attendees will use the Creative Experience and learn about the resources available for multi-media production.
