The first step to every dream is finding a way to show up. By choosing to join The Work of Words, you are saying “yes,” to your next step as a writer. You are saying "yes" to your story!

The Work of Words course invites our military community to practice putting words together on the page with creativity and discernment over a 6-week timeline. We will craft stories that will leave the writer and the future reader both immersed and impacted.

Each lesson will encourage, stretch you, and help you build on the elements of a strong story- using a creative nonfiction framework. 

This course is for those that are: 

  • Brand new to creative writing! This course will teach you an easy-to-follow framework for a creative nonfiction essay. You'll discover pieces of your own story and walk away with your very first completed draft. 
  • Experienced writers, you've been writing your whole life! That's great and your writing skills are going to help you ease into each lesson. Still, there is a difference between writing on your own and writing with an intentional group of your fellow creatives. Each week, you'll receive and give feedback to your essays. Therefore your writing skills will continue to sharpen and refine.
  • Busy, not sure if you have the capacity! We deeply empathize here. Writing amid military life comes with its own set of challenges. We've intentionally broken down the course to be manageable & digestible each week. The lessons will come with audio for when you're on the go and everything will be delivered over email so you can access the course from anywhere. 
  • Dreaming big, you're ready to submit your story for publication! Yes, we're cheering you on and cannot wait to write alongside you. Throughout the course, you'll have the accountability and time to weave out your personal narrative, gain clarity on the theme of your story, and discover connection points to truly immerse and impact your reader. 
  • Not a service family member, yet still wants to learn how to compose their story. Here at Legacy, we've always believed that the lives of service member families are enriched when they're able to connect with their civilian communities. As well as, deep connection and understanding can unfold when our civilian supporters read service member stories. We welcome you to join the course. 

We can't wait to write alongside you.

Let the Words Work!
