I have been a poetry editor for Veterans' Voices magazine--part of The Hospitalized Veterans Writing Project--since 1976. The magazine publishes prose and poetry written by vets under the care of the VA. This writing therapy project has served veterans from every war and engagement since WW II. Writing about experiences, emotions, fears, and challenges has given solace and encouragement to thousands of veterans throughout the county. Also, by writing, veterans explore the world of creativity--a world in which they can expand and develop their talents. Not every piece of writing published in Veterans' Voices could be published in a literary journal unless the pieces were judged on how much they touch and heal hearts. Veterans' Voices currently pays each veteran upon publication and also offers cash prizes for each issue. The pride veterans feel when they see their work in print is priceless for them and for our country.
