Write Across Nebraska
July 12th-14th. Write Across Nebraska is a mini NaNoWriMo, if you're familiar with that one. Basically, we try to get as many writers in Nebraska writing over that weekend that we can, and we tally up the word count for the weekend. We have fun writing our brains out. Some people get over 10,000 words down! Mark your calendar and plan on joining us for Write Across Nebraska!
July 27th in the Benson neighborhood in Omaha, NE. For the first time, the NWG will have a booth at the Benson Days street fair. Be sure to visit Wayne and Cort for the latest from the NWG!
