Few book or film projects about the war in Iraq have utilized the voices and artistic vision of those actually involved: the soldiers serving our country and their families. But the National Endowment for the Arts’ initiative “Operation Homecoming: Writing the Wartime Experience” has gone where few others have. In addition to sponsoring writing workshops with renowned writers at various military bases, it held an open call for submissions from servicemen and their kin. The film, “Muse of Fire” — an anthology and a documentary that explores the unique arts program — screens tonight at 6:30 at the National Archives’ William G. McGowan Theater (Constitution Avenue between Seventh and Ninth streets Northwest). A book-signing and discussion will follow; the event is free but seating is limited.
