The Nebaraska Writers Collective is dedicated to promoting and supporting creativity, literary awareness, poetry, and performance poetry throughout the Midwest.

Currently, we do this through our 'Poets on Loan' program, which sends two experienced teaching artists into middle and high school classrooms around Nebraska and western Iowa to lead high-energy poetry workshops.

Poetry can be lively and engaging (rather than an extended exercise in suffering courtesy of a few dead white guys). Our Poets on Loan embody this ethic by bringing a fresh take on poetry and writing, and do so in a way that middle and high school students can understand while they do writing of their own (and in the meantime, work on figurative language, metaphor, and conscientious language usage).
