Seeking Veterans’ Voices

Hi everyone,

Tina Hacker is an old friend and colleague from Hallmark days. Tina is a poet, strong supporter of the arts, and has for years played an active role in promoting The Writers’ Place in Kansas City. If you aren’t familiar with Tina’s adult poetry, one of my favorites is LISTENING TO NIGHT WHISTLES.

Since 1976 Tina has edited poetry for “Veteran’s Voices Writing Project.” The mission of the project is to enable military veterans to experience solace and satisfaction through the writing program. Veterans are encouraged to share their poems, stories, prose, photos, song lyrics, and artwork as a way to heal as well as entertain.

If you are a veteran or know someone who is, please consider getting in touch with the project to submit work. At the moment Tina has 75 poems for the upcoming spring edition but needs 90 before January 1. For information about how to do it, visit this site:

Tina, please make any corrections necessary to this post and/or add additional thoughts. Good luck with the project. It sounds wonderful!
