I loved going through the Warrior Writer’s website, tons of videos and stories of War Veterans experience. Most of the videos are of these Veterans reciting their written work. I also enjoyed the work of Aaron Hughes who poems hit home for me and my experiences in Iraq. check him out
Warrior Writer’s mission is to create a culture that articulates veterans’ experiences. They aim to provide the opportunity for a creative community for artistic expression among veterans. They provide witness to the lived experiences of warriors.
Warrior Writers is a dynamic, organic journey that provides tools and space for community building, healing and redefinition for veterans of the Global War on Terror. Through writing/artistic workshops that are based on their experiences in the military, Afghanistan and Iraq, participants connect with other veterans on a personal and artistic level. Art is compiled into books, performances and exhibits that provide a lens into the hearts of people who experienced war.
