About Words for the Wounded
W4W is run by three writers, Margaret Graham, Jan Speedie and Penny Deacon and an extreme marathon runner and organiser, Matt Pain, who wanted to help our wounded servicemen and women by using the writing skills of anyone and everyone who has a story to tell. We believe our troops deserve all possible help and that everyone, including writers and sportsmen, want to help.
Our objective is to raise money for the rehabilitation of our wounded servicemen and women via writing prizes and donations. We act as a conduit and pass the proceeds to existing projects.
