This call for writers and storytellers is part of a grant with the Institute of Library and Museum Services. The purpose is to create and publish a series of books for different ages. This book is focused on bringing stories together for youth/young adults so they can read the stories of those like them and older generations to see how it is and how it was growing up Menominee.
To help us share these stories, please submit your story (written, audio recording, or video recording) by March 30. Participants will get a FREE journal and be entered into the drawing for a Writer's Prize Basket. These stories will be considered for the publication. Editing may be done. Authors published in this book will receive a FREE copy after publication.
