American Warrior Writing

Thank-you to all veterans and active military. We may not show it enough, but you are so very appreciated!

My interview of Vietnam War author Tim O’Brien appears in Proud to Be: Writing by American Warriors, Volume 2 which officially releases on November 15th.

This anthology presents essays, fiction, poetry, interviews, and photography by military-service personnel, veterans, and their families. It is the second in an annual series published by Southeast Missouri State University Press in cooperation with the Missouri Humanities Council's Veterans Projects and the Warriors Arts Alliance.  

"The stories and poems of service and sacrifice are essential in understanding what has so broadly been termed 'the American experience.' For me, Proud to Be: Writing by American Warriors is required reading and worthy of a thousand tears."     ―St. Leger Monty Joynes, veteran, Vietnam

Books can now be ordered from the Southeast Missouri State University Press and Amazon. Volume one can still be purchased from both as well.

Interested in submitting to Vol. 3? They are already accepting submissions which are due by June 1, 2014. Contests and prizes will be awarded in each of the five categories. To learn more, please visit:  http://www6.semo.edu/universitypress/Contests/PTB_Contest.htm
