Thanks to a generous donation from the Blake and Bailey Fund, Line of Advance is presenting the Colonel Darron L. Wright Award. Like us, Darron Wright was a soldier: a larger than life infantry commander with several tours under his belt. And also like us, Col. Wright was a writer: a thoughtful, reflective artist, eager to tell the truth about his men with compassion and a commander’s eye.

This award is presented in his name in an effort to honor his memory.

Prizes to the three finalists in both poetry and prose writing. The contest window is open from 1 February to 1 April
