Reading. Craft. Conversation.
Teri Grimm & Dan Boster pulled back the curtain on their creative process and invited us to become part of the conversation. We gathered with a community of readers and writers on June 28 from 7 – 9 PM to listen and respond to readings from Grimm and Boster. We dove deeper into our creative process and improved upon our own at a free writing workshop on June 30 from 11:30 – 1:30 PM.
Presented by KANEKO and the Nebraska Writers Collective, feedback is an ongoing series that aims to enliven the conversation about the writing process providing novice and experienced writers an opportunity to collaborate and strengthen their work.
June 28 | 7 – 9 PM
June 30 | 11:30 AM – 1:30 PM
