Great Basin College
1500 College Parkway
Elko, NV 89801

Free for Vets and their families / Drop in anytime Monday-Friday and stay as long as you like. Spouses and family of veterans encouraged to participate. Great crises often produce great writing. War is no exception. And while the historians and politicians write the history, a soldier's version is often found in poems, songs and stories. Soldiers' spouses and loved ones also have their own stories to share. These stories need to be told. The Veterans Writers Project, hosted by the Veterans Resource Center at Great Basin College, provides a place to tell and refine these stories with the help of other veterans and writers.
