The Veterans’ Voices Award Ceremony will honor Veterans’ stories at the Union Depot in St. Paul. The Minnesota Humanities Center invites Veterans living in Minnesota to submit poetry, prose, essays, and memoirs for consideration. We will invite selected authors to attend the Ceremony on October 5 to celebrate their work.

Submissions should explore themes of: Combat & Non-Combat, Duty, Family, Motivation, Perceptions, Reintegration, Service, and Transformation. Prior to submitting written work, we encourage Veterans to attend one of the Humanities Center’s five Warrior Writers Workshops around the state from April 14 to July 13. Attendance at a workshop is not mandatory, and it will not influence the Awards selection process.
