Nebraska, Our Muse


Join the editors and poets of Nebraska Presence, the 2018 One Book One Nebraska selection, in the exploration and celebration of our state's history and people. This program is part reading, part writing, and part conversation. An editor (or two, depending on availability) and a small group of poets (again, depending on availability) will read work from Nebraska Presence that feature the landscape and inhabitants (past and present) of our state: the lay of the land, the people, nature (flora and fauna), animals of air, land, and sea and talk a bit about how these poems help us to better see and think about what is right before us. A short writing workshop will follow, with writing prompts and suggestions for exploring our state through writing poetry. Participants will share their work, if they wish, and poets will answer questions about writing as well as about sending out work and publishing.
