Join us in sharing your stories, your knowledge, and your humanity.
Tell your story
Storytelling is at the heart of UMGC’s Military Community Writers’ (MCW) mission to promote, nurture, and advocate for a community of writers who will share their stories, their knowledge, and their humanity. Generations of war veterans have used fiction, poetry, and memoir to tell their stories, transforming traumatic memories and war experiences into fictionally truthful renderings or into memoirs that simultaneously preserve and narrate factual accounts. Today’s Global War on Terrorism veterans are following this tradition.
