The Manomin Project is now seeking poetry and art submissions about manomin (wild rice)! They’re asking creators to submit original pieces that explore human and other-than-human relationships with manomin.

In order to be considered, individuals must contextualize their work in 250 to 500 words. This text is to explain what the piece is intended to teach about manomin (past, present, or future).

Selected works will be featured on the Manomin Project’s social media pages on Instagram and Twitter (@manominproject). The winning works will have the opportunity to be published in an upcoming scholarly anthology on manomin.
