The MSU Writing Center is excited to announce our 3rd Annual Writing and Art Competition, “For Those Who Serve.”We invite student veterans and service members, as well as students who are family members of veterans and service members, to share their experiences in response to this year’s theme, “Letters from the Front,” which encourages reflections on training or deployment in addition to life on the home front.

MSU’s own veteran faculty and staff members will serve as judges for all submissions, and prizes will be awarded in both writing and art categories, as well as a separate category for family members. Winners will be announced during Veteran’s Appreciation Week, and all submissions will be featured in our 2nd edition of the “For Those Who Serve” journal (contestants may choose to remain anonymous for the journal if so desired).

The Writing Center would also like to invite participants to work on their writing and projects for this contest at any of our locations, both face-to-face or online.. We are excited  to hear about your experiences, and we look forward to talking with your about your work and ideas for submissions!

The deadline for submissions is Friday, October 6, 2017 at 11:59 p.m. CST. Please visit the Writing Center’s website ( for more details and for submission forms, as well as for information about how to schedule an appointment, and email with any questions regarding the contest.
