Veteran Writers Alliance was founded as a means to assist Veterans “Heal Through Writing.” This venture came about when two passionate writers crossed paths in 2018 in a local writers group. One is a veteran of 27+ years of service including three wars, and the other a local publisher. They both saw the drastic changes that occurred with the Veteran after two years of writing and sharing his stories. He became more personable, focused, and outgoing. In discussing these changes, the idea came about to help others, especially combat veterans, have the same opportunity and experience of healing through writing.
Its goal is to create small groups all throughout the nation. This will produce momentum and engage more veterans to find a safe space where they can express themselves. Where they can feel free to share their thoughts and ideas, without any judgments, just acceptance, support, and camaraderie.
To all Veterans, their family, friends and the community at large, we invite you to join this worthy cause and help us reach our mission’s goals.
