This feedback session is brought to you by Sparkwheel Press and the UNO Writer’s Workshop. The 2016-2017 feedback series is made possible by generous contributions from Humanities Nebraska, the Nebraska Arts Council and the Nebraska Writers Collective.
feedback is an ongoing series that aims to elevate the conversation about the writing process. This literary reading series invites featured writers to present new works or works-in-progress in order to get audience feedback on those works. Part reading, part conversation, the goal of feedback is to provide working writers with a space to take creative risks, to invigorate the audience by inviting them into the writer’s creative development, and to provide the audience an opportunity to generate their own work.
