NeWP Spring and Summer Writing Marathons

Writers chatting in Memorial Park

Writing Marathons have always held a special place within the NeWP community.

The Nebraska Writing Project has been sponsoring writing marathons since 2006, embracing their ability to bring teachers back to their NeWP roots and to promote place-conscious thinking and writing. Seasonal writing marathons are held each year. This year the spring marathon was held in partnership with the Omaha Warrior Writers.

NeWP TCs and members of the Omaha Warrior Writers met at Sorenson Library in early June to launch the 2017 Spring Writing Marathon. Writing groups set out across the Dundee neighborhood to capture the day through their pens. Popular writing spots included eCreamery, Memorial Park, the Dundee community garden, and local coffee shops. Please enjoy some of our writing from the day.
