The Mighty Pen Project generates, preserves, shares, and honors stories written by military veterans and their supporters. Its writers craft works that are creative, deeply expressive, and vital documents of service and history. The many written historical narratives and literature that emerge from its classes are the focus and content of our online Anthology & Archive, selections from which are printed annually in its journal.
