Hospitalized Veterans’ Writing Project (HVWP) utilizes therapeutic writing to rehabilitate hospitalized and outpatient veterans
served by the Department of Veterans Affairs system.
HVWP encourages veterans to write, through the coordinated efforts of volunteers and/or VA medical center staff. Veterans often experience traumatic and life-changing experiences in the service of their country. Writing serves as therapy for many veterans who participate through the VA medical centers across the United States of America.
HVWPs therapeutic writing program is designed to acknowledge veterans experiences and build self-esteem through creative expression and possible publication. Veterans are encouraged to submit their manuscripts (prose, poetry and artwork) for national publication in Veterans Voices, the only publication dedicated solely to veterans writings.
Veterans Voices is published with contributions to the Hospitalized Veterans Writing Project.
