A STORY FROM OUR AGENCY:
Veterans find a creative outlet and support on their journey to healing at Nebraska Warrior Writers workshops. Facilitated by professional writing instructors and aimed at veterans and active duty military personnel, the workshops focus on developing writing strategies, skills, and feedback. Writers also bond as they encourage each other to write and share their work. According to one U.S. Air Force veteran, military spouse, and participant in Nebraska Warrior Writers, "It's hard to have a hobby as a mother of four young children and with an active duty spouse who deploys, but I've come to realize that finding a creative outlet and pursuing it can be energizing and healing. The Warrior Writers group has been a place to share, encourage, and make concrete strides in writing, all of which have helped me keep that artistic fire alive." The writers recently produced their first anthology, From Warriors to Warrior Writers: Journeys to Healing.
