Hospital: Hospitalized Veterans Writing Project is Now Veterans’ Voices
Change can be a good thing. As we transition to the Veterans of Foreign Wars Auxiliary, please be patient as forms, guides, and information is updated. Everyone is working hard to make this a smooth transition!
Have you visited the website for the Hospitalized Veterans Writing Project recently? You’ll see a change there as well. It’s now known as Veterans’ Voices Writing Project. This program gives ALL veterans a way to express themselves by utilizing therapeutic writing to rehabilitate veterans. They encourage veterans to share their thoughts and feelings in writing and to send their stories, essays and poems to the VVWP headquarters for potential publication in Veterans’ Voices magazine. The magazine is published 3 times a year.
So how can you help? That’s as easy as 1 – 2 – 3!
Contributions are always needed to keep the presses rolling. Writers who have their work published receive a small honorarium and qualify for special prizes. Both are made possible through donations.
Any Auxiliary member or Auxiliary can subscribe to the magazine. Your support helps offset the expense of sending complimentary copies of Veterans’ Voices to all VA Medical Centers. And it gives you the opportunity to read what our veterans have to say!
You can help be the voice for a veteran who needs help in writing his/her story. Whether it is one-on-one or with a group, you can help write or type their submission. Many may not know how to get their work submitted. YOU can be the one to make the difference.
