Presented by KANEKO and the Nebraska Writers Collective, this interactive reading series asks the question: What happens when writers pull back the curtain on their creative process and invite the audience to become part of the conversation?
feedback is an ongoing series that aims to enliven the conversation about the writing process. Part reading, part conversation, the goal of this reading series is to provide working writers with a space to read and discuss their work, to invigorate the audience by inviting them into the writer’s process and creative development, and, through our free writing workshops, to provide adults and young adults in our community an opportunity to generate their own work.
