Afterwords: From War and HomeThe Veterans Writing Workshop gives veterans the tools and confidence they need to bring their stories to life.

Veterans meet once a week for valuable peer support and feedback on their writing. These professional-level writing workshops are free of charge to all U.S. veterans.

The workshop concludes with the publication of a book that preserves and celebrates the veterans' writing.

Veterans then share their accomplishment with the community in public readings and events.

All workshops and readings take place in the metropolitan New York area.

"The Veterans Writing Workshop does something personal and priceless. A writer can't raise the dead, but he can keep the past alive and along with it those who must never be forgotten. Their stories--the essence of their lives--must not be buried with them."
                                    –Rod Carlson, Capt., USMC
