UNIVERSITY PARK | Governors State University is inviting veterans to join a new Veterans Writing Group, where they will discover the craft of narrative writing in a small, supportive group environment.

Groups will meet for six-week workshops beginning in January to learn new skills and share camaraderie with other vets.

“Narrative writing helps veterans bridge the cultural divide between their military and civilian life,” explains Robin Thompson, university lecturer and coordinator of the program. “Their stories are important and may one day become a valuable family heirloom or community resource — everyone benefits.”

There is no charge for participation in the Veterans Writing Group. To register, contact Thompson at (708) 534-4581 or

Governors State University is located at 1 University Parkway.
