About

VVWP RECEIVES 450-600 MANUSCRIPTS ANNUALLY AND AROUND 100 ARE PUBLISHED IN EACH OF THE THREE ISSUES OF OUR MAGAZINE, VETERANS' VOICES. THE BENEFITS OF THIS PROGRAM TO HEAL AND EXPERIENCE SATISFACTION, CAN BEST BE DESCRIBED BY ONE OF OUR VETERAN AUTHORS: "THIRTEEN YEARS AGO I HAD A HEART ATTACK AND COULD NOT WRITE. MY DOCTOR ASSIGNED A WRITING MENTOR TO ME TO REBUILD MY ABILITY TO WRITE. AFTER A YEAR AND A HALF, I PRODUCED 15 STORIES WHICH WERE PUBLISHED IN VETERANS' VOICES MAGAZINE AND FOR THAT I AM GRATEFUL. I HAVE PRODUCED A BOOK, MY BABY AND OTHER STORIES, AND INCLUDED MY STORIES FROM VETERANS' VOICES. I GOT MY START IN VETERANS' VOICES AND HOPE TO GET PUBLISHED AGAIN."
