Today I am going to talk about a couple of the other writing projects I have going on.
I am currently working on a memoir of my experience joining the Army in my thirties as an Orthodox Jew and my experiences in Afghanistan. I am also working on a play that takes place in a hilltop outpost in Afghanistan.
I never thought that writing for theater would be an interest but last December I heard about a Playwriting for Veterans course being offered through Indiana University. You can learn a bit more about the program and actually hear a few moments of a reading of the first draft in this NPR article.
However, there is something about writing drama that appeals to me. I have other dramatic works in the plans for the future.
I will post more details as the memoir and play are more developed but these will be my primary creative focus in 2023.
