who we are

The Veterans Writing Workshop was created as an outgrowth of a successful veterans' writing workshop hosted by Fordham-Westchester University in spring of 2010 as part of the National Endowment for the Arts' The Big Read program. We offer writing programs in public settings and in special veterans' programs and facilities in Westchester County and the New York Metropolitan area.

The Veterans Writing Workshop has received support from the Fordham Veterans Initiative, Arts Westchester, Poets & Writers Readings/Workshops Program, the Hudson Valley Writers Center, and other funders.

David Surface, founder and instructor, has designed and led writing programs in public schools, mental health centers, homeless programs, and other community settings for twenty years.
