Annual Events

Annual Events of the Nebraska Writers Guild

  • The annual Spring Conference is held in the eastern urban area of Nebraska. We anticipate many years of showing off Nebraska to speakers from the east and west coast who will learn that our members have a lot to offer the publishing and film industries.

  • This is a mini-conference set in western Nebraska each year. It's a one-day event where speakers will talk about writing, publishing, and marketing.

  • The annual Fall Conference is an opportunity for our members to get outside the major cities and enjoy the spectacular Rural Nebraska ambiance. We have agent pitches, classes, and the popular Boot Camp where members can get individual critique on whatever it is they are writing. The best part is interacting with other writers and making those personal connections.

  • "Write Across Nebraska" Mid-Summer Event

    Write Across Nebraska - WAN - is a statewide event that happens each July. The purpose of WAN is to encourage all writers (not just members of the guild) to write. After WAN is over, we turn in our word counts and tally them up. Our goal is to beat our word count from the previous year.

  • NWG at the NE State Fair

    Members are encouraged to contact the State Fair Coordinator to sign up for "hosting" the booth for whatever time is possible during the run of the Fair. Over 300,000 people walk by that booth. We hand out fliers, talk about our organization and member/hosts can sell books. You can obtain a discounted pass to the fair by volunteering.

  • Special events are scheduled throughout the year. These may include reading and book sales at libraries, bookstores, art and wine galleries; stand-alone workshops; retreats; contests, etc. Sign up for our newsletter to stay connected.
