Post #11: Assignment Afghanistan

Things You Should Be Reading

Elliott Woods is another amazing writer (and photographer) I met at Bread Loaf this past August.  He is a journalist and former soldier who covers America’s war in Afghanistan.  I knew that Elliott reported regularly for Virginia Quarterly Review on the subject and recently discovered a website he’s put together that collects his writings on Afghanistan.  It’s full of engaging media as well, photos and video from and about his trips, as well as many heart wrenching stories of a war that I, like so many Americans, know very little about, though it’s the longest war in our nation’s history.

Kudos to Elliott on this brave and important work.
