Omaha Nebraska Warrior Writers workshops start February 25

Veterans and active duty military personnel in the greater Omaha area are invited to join Nebraska Warrior Writers from February 25 through May 6 at the Willa Cather Branch Library, 1905 S. 44th Street, Omaha. This free writing workshop is offered by Humanities Nebraska, the Nebraska Writing Project, Omaha Public
Library and the Nebraska Cultural Endowment.

Six Saturday morning sessions, facilitated by professional writing instructors, will last from 10:15 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. Each session 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 Jen Stastny at or (402) 960-3995, or Cindy Cronn at or (402) 319-3195. For more information about participating in, facilitating, or sponsoring this program,
