Instructor: Karen Spears Zacharias, author of Christian Bend

Gold Star Daughter Karen Spears Zacharias, author of After the Flag Has Been Folded (William Morrow) and editorial panelist for Operation Homecoming (National Endowment of the Arts), examines the storytelling methods which honor the promise to "Never Forget."
"The stories of war need to be more than an information dump or blow-by-blow of the battles fought," Zacharias says. "The obligation of those left behind is to tell the stories that bring the fallen to life. To ransom the sacred as best we can." Join Zacharias as she explores ways to tell those stories through both fiction and non-fiction. This writing workshop is open to writers at all levels of interest and experience and will be especial beneficial to those who have served--and to family members of those who have served--in our armed forces.
Advance registration required. Workshop registration fees are non-refundable, but if you must cancel, the fee can be applied toward a future Conroy Center class or event.
