At the invitation of the Nebraska Writing Project, I attended their recent awards ceremony. The project aims to celebrate and improve writing in classrooms and communities across the state. Mostly teachers make up its membership and receive awards.

Another Nebraska children’s writer, Mary Elizabeth Anderson, and I displayed our books at the back of the room and networked with teachers. We are both open to visiting classrooms to speak about writing and our work as authors.

Nebraska is fortunate to have one of the most active projects in the nation and continues to make good use of grants received. The project puts on writing workshops for students and community members. One of my current critique groups formed after meeting at one of these workshops.

Go, Nebraska!
