Write Across Nebraska


Write Across Nebraska Information


Q: What is Write Across Nebraska?

A: Write Across Nebraska - WAN -  is a state wide event that happens each July. The purpose of WAN is to encourage all writers (not just members of the guild) to write. If anyone wants to get together and write, that is perfectly fine. Any person is welcome to invite others to meet and write. After WAN is over, we turn in our word counts (fill out the form at the bottom of the page) and tally them up. Our goal is to beat our word count each year.


Q: When is WAN this year?

A: It's July 15th-17th.


Q: Who can particpate?

A: Any writer can participate! Even if you don't live in Nebraska, join in the fun and submit your total words written after the event.


Q: How can I participate?

A: The goal of WAN is to encourage people to write. On the weekend that WAN takes place, write as much as you can. Then come over here to the website and fill out the form below to let us know how many words you were able to write.


Q: Do I get anything for participating?

A: You get the pleasure of knowing you've helped us beat our last year's word count! And, if you write 1,000 words or more, you get to print off a neat certificate to hang on your wall.


Q: How many words did participants of WAN write in July, 2015?

A: WAN writers last year came in at 67,964 words! This is our goal to beat in 2016.


Q: Can I start writing at Midnight the first day of WAN?

A: Absolutely.


Q: Is there a Facebook group for WAN?

A: Why, yes there is! Anyone can join, not just members of the NWG. Click Here and ask to join our fun WAN Facebook group.


Q: Are there any WAN gatherings?

A: There are no official Guild gatherings this year, but individuals are welcome to organize something and write together if they would like. If you are organizing something, feel free to post about it on the Facebook group.



You are not required to be a member of the Guild to participate! We would love all writers to join in!
