The Veterans Writing Project
The Nevada Office of Veterans Services and CSN have just launched the Veterans Writing Project. The project will offer classes for combat veterans to learn how to write memoir, fiction and poetry. Research shows that writing about war experiences and then sharing your work in a group setting can help heal psychological wounds for some veterans. We talk with the head of the Nevada Office of Veterans Services and Vietnam Veteran H. Lee Barnes about the project, their combat experience and how they hope to help Nevada veterans through writing.
