icon Marine Writing Program

The Marine Writing Program encourages creativity, critical reasoning skills, open discussion, and frank dialogue on topics important to Marines and ensures those serving today will excel in tomorrow’s complex environment.

Topics for these writing contests range from leadership and training, to operational concepts and employment, to innovation, to new technical developments, and to irregular warfare, among others. Encouraging well developed written works that ask questions and offer solutions is essential to today’s Marines and the future of the Marine Corps. Those who excel at these competitions have the opportunity for their articles to be published in the Marine Corps Gazette or Leatherneck, Magazine of the Marines.

For questions or additional information, please contact MSgt Preston Mitchell, USMC (Ret) at p.mitchell@mca-marines.org703-640-0132
