Nebraska Warrior Writers

Nebraska Warrior Writers resumes workshops this fall

Nebraska veterans and active duty military personnel in the Omaha and Lincoln areas are invited to participate in Nebraska Warrior Writers beginning in September. This free writing workshop is presented by Humanities Nebraska and the Nebraska Writing  Project with support from the VA Nebraska/Western Iowa Health Care System.

Each workshop meets for six sessions, facilitated by professional writing instructors. Participants develop the skills and understanding to write any genre they like. To date, writers have explored fiction, memoirs, essays, poetry, and song on various topics

No previous writing experience is necessary and family is welcome to attend. Participants will learn to generate ideas and revise and edit their work. Opportunities for publishing
and public readings are addressed during the program. Some participants have already been published.
