Join us for the third annual festival featuring the work of writers from across the United States. The goal of this festival is to cultivate a supportive environment for creative exploration in and around the varied experiences that surround the military. This festival uses theatre to begin a community conversation that builds bridges between the civilian and military worlds.

This event is free. Advance registration is encouraged as seating is limited.
