WVC teams with Arts Illiana for anniversary writing contest

This year is shaping up to be a big year for White Violet Center for Eco-Justice (WVC), a ministry of the Sisters of Providence of Saint Mary-of-the-Woods, Indiana!

In collaboration with Arts Illiana, WVC is celebrating its 25th anniversary by inviting all to submit poetry and/or essay submissions relating to the ministry’s work. A panel of judges will select pieces which will be included in a publication that will be presented to the Congregation in honor of the anniversary year, and all submissions will be shared by WVC and Arts Illiana on social media throughout the summer and fall.

“This project started when we were talking about the 25th anniversary and brainstorming ideas to recognize the milestone,” WVC Tour Coordinator Tara Elmore said.

Submissions are open to all persons interested. Additional information may be found at the Arts Illiana website, artsilliana.com. The deadline for submissions is Sept. 1.

According to the Arts Illiana website, the submissions are an “opportunity to thank the Sisters of Providence for their vision and commitment to caring for, serving and sustaining our Earth.”

“Some of the submissions will be added to the Sisters of Providence Archives Department, commemorating the anniversary, as well as having them on social media and other publications,” Elmore said.

For more information regarding submissions, contact Arts Illiana at 812-235-5007 or by email at info@artsilliana.com.

WVC offers all visitors a chance to tour the 5-acre USDA certified organic garden, while visiting orchards, the Farm Store, our herd of alpacas and flock of chickens, nature trails and more.

For more information on tours at WVC or more, call 812-535-2932 or email wvc@spsmw.org.
