Poetry of Place - Lincoln
The Nebraska Writing Project sponsors the annual Poetry of Place event. The goal of this project is to encourage teachers of students in grades 1-12 across Nebraska to include units of poetry of place in their classrooms and to submit outstanding examples of student work that reflects an engagement with their places. For the event, students submit their poetry and then local authors work to choose student representatives. These students then read their poetry at the Capitol event, and their poetry is published on the website of the Nebraska Writing Project.
