In Memoriam - Writing Workshop at UMass Boston with Caleb Nelson

It's Memorial Day weekend, time to reflect on the warriors we lost.

For this workshop, at The William Joiner Institute for the Study of War and Social Consequences, Caleb Nelson will lead a discussion on stories that memorialize our heros. We will look at texts by Joseph Heller and Tim O'Brien, among others.

If you've been working on an elegy or a short story about death and remembering the fallen, please post it up for comments on If you've attended one of our workshops and are not yet a contributor on our new Reddit page, email your username to and we'll add you.

We will meet in the conference room next to the Joiner Institute on the 10th Floor of the Healey Library at UMass Boston. For more info, or with questions, call Caleb 617-680-0254.
