Words After War is an emerging literary nonprofit with a mission to offer fully-funded opportunities for veterans and their family members to share their stories. We aim to build a supportive creative community through workshops, studio retreats, literary mentorships and a writer-in-residence program.
We believe that literature is an invaluable art form and communication tool. Community is at the heart of everything we do. Literary programming is a powerful tool in building a healthier veteran community. Moreover, when veterans share their stories, a more open and more informed veteran-civilian dialogue emerges. We believe veterans need more opportunities to tell their stories, and these stories need to be made available to a broader audience.
