VETERANS WRITING PROJECT

Because Every Veteran Has a Story

Edgecomb, ME   |  www.veteranswriting.org

Mission

We provide no-cost creative writing and songwriting workshops and seminars to veterans, service members, and their family members. We also publish writing by this community in a quarterly literary review, O-Dark-Thirty, that appears both in print and online. We work with partners around the country to present our work. Regular partners include the National Endowment for the Arts, The Wilderness Society, Association of the United States Army, national veterans services organizations, colleges and universities, state and county arts and humanities councils. Our instructors meet three strict criteria: working writer, graduate writing degree, veteran.
