Warrior Writers is fundraising to help publish our third anthology that features writing and visual art of Iraq and Afghanistan veterans. Through our writing and art workshops, veterans are able to share their military experiences, receive support from other veterans and connect with their community.

This inspiring collection comes from over 60 veterans from around the country who have attended our workshops or shared on our blog. Through poetry, prose, and visual/digital art, these veterans have delved into their personal experiences and mustered up the courage to share their stories.

Supporting this book will uplift veterans' voices and support their right to be heard, a meaningful way to honor Veterans Day.

Though we have set our goal for $4000, we need to go above and beyond this amount to reach the full potential of this project.  We will still need an additional $2000 for the copyright,  ISBN and bar-code, promotion, shipping from publishing, KickStarter fees, and to ship all of our awesome books and perks to awesome people.

FAQ

  • We will be sending the book to be published the week of November 21st. The book will take a month to print and be shipped to us. We are aiming to be delivered before Christmas.
