"I joined the Veterans’ Writing Group via Zoom just as COVID-19’s claws were strangling our abilities to safely meet in person. As a novice writer, each week I have had many opportunities to learn this craft. One unexpected benefit is that I am learning how to critique other people’s work. I recently used this new skill by providing constructive feedback on both story line content and grammar for my granddaughter’s college application essays.

Thank you VWG!

I can’t wait to meet all of you in person one day." - Sue Steven

                 >> By the way, all proceeds from our books go to helping veterans to share and inspire others through their stories

The Veterans Writing Group of San Diego County is passionate about writing and improving the process needed to tell our stories. We are Military Veterans learning to write our story in our own words may it be fiction or not. Please email us a message, comment or recommendations that will assist us in helping others write their story.

Now you can laugh, cry, and live out these experiences with us by reading our books: Listen Up! and Away for the Holidays. They offer a window — several windows — into the experience of the modern veteran. 

Do you have a story to tell? We do!

A group of military veterans meet once a month in North County San Diego to share their lives and stories. "Sometimes funny, sometimes heartbreaking, always ringing true," but found nowhere else.
