Write Across Nebraska is an annual event held the second Saturday in July. Writers across the state are encouraged to set aside time to write, individually or in community, on this day. All interested scribes are invited to come and go as they wish. There is no cost and no need to make a reservation. Though we work individually, with a minimum of chatting and noise, many writers find the environment to be inspiring and motivating. After the event, participants submit their total word count to the Nebraska Writers Guild. The guild will tally the words of all who contributed and announce the total.
