Serve the Warrior is happy to be collaborating with Military Experience & the Arts! Like STW, Military Experience & the Arts is a nonprofit, volunteer-run organization for Veterans. MEA’s primary mission is to work with Veterans and their families to publish creative prose, poetry, and artwork. All editing, consultations, and workshops are free of charge to those accepted for publication. Each Veteran receives extensive, one-on-one consultations on his or her written or artistic work no matter where that Veteran might be located. MEA also works with scholars to publish articles related to Veterans’ issues in the humanities and social sciences.
MEA’s “flagship” publication is The Journal of Military Experience (JME). JME began in 2011 in a college classroom and presently receives worldwide submissions from Veterans and military communities. MEA is currently working on their third volume which will feature 59 original artwork pieces. You can learn more about JME’s upcoming contributing artists HERE.
As word spread about JME, submissions grew larger and larger ultimately inspiring the creation of three more journals: The Veterans’ PTSD Project, Blue Streak: A Journal of Military Poetry, The Blue Falcon Review. The inaugural issue of The Blue Falcon Review will be released next month. You can read more about its authors and the creation process HERE.
