Grand Island writing workshop for vets, active duty military personnel

Veterans and active duty military personnel in the tri-cities area are invited to join Nebraska Warrior Writers, going on now through March 25. This free writing workshop is offered by Humanities Nebraska, the Nebraska Writing Project and the Grand Island Public Library.

Six Saturday morning sessions, facilitated by professional writing instructors, will help participants develop the skills and understanding they need to write any genre they like. In recent sessions held in Grand Island, Lincoln and Omaha, participants produced fiction, poetry, memoirs, essays and song.

No previous writing experience is necessary. The workshop is designed to help vets and active duty military personnel learn to generate ideas and revise and edit their work. Opportunities for publishing and public readings are also addressed during the program.

All veterans and active duty military personnel who have an interest in writing are encouraged to attend. There is no obligation; participants can attend as many or as few sessions as they like. To sign up, contact Erin DeHart at or (402) 366-7182. For more information, visit To sign up for the program, send email to
