‘Warrior Words’ writing workshop for veterans planned Bismarck Tribune
A writing workshop for all U.S. veterans, “Warrior Words,” is planned for four North Dakota cities this month, including Bismarck on Jan. 25.
The Greater Grand Forks Community Theater received a N.D. Humanities Council grant to fund the monologue-writing workshop to be held in four cities that will be taught by college professors.
The professors are: Sherry O’Donnell, Grand Forks; Conrad Davidson, Minot; Nita Ritzke, Bismarck; and Peter Grimes, Dickinson.
Participants who create a polished monologue will receive a stipend for their writing and have the opportunity to either read it aloud before an audience in their workshop city and see it performed in Grand Forks.
Performances will be during the run of the community theater’s production of Stephen Dietz’ play, “The Last of the Boys” in April.
“Last of the Boys” revolves around two Vietnam veterans and the ghosts who haunt them.
All the workshop writers will be provided with transportation to Grand Forks for a collective reading of participants in conjunction with Memorial Day in May.
For information, contact the Bismarck instructor, Nita Ritzke, at: firstname.lastname@example.org or 701-471-7673.
