The award is open to both first time writers, as well as published authors.
For nearly a century, the Slovenian Union of America has been dedicated to preserving the legacy of the Slovenian ancestry of its members. Writing has been a formative part of the Slovene heritage, and the SUA Slovenian Literary Award acknowledges those who continue this vital tradition. The winner will be announced in June 2022 honoring the award recipients for their literary contributions. The time and place will be announced at a later date.
Applicants are welcome to register, provide a 100-word biography, and submit their work by clicking below:
Each day in the month of April 2022, one winner will be chosen to win the cash prize for that day - $65 or $175. The monies received will benefit the SUA National Convention in June 2023.
