Louder Than a Bomb is Coming!
Hundreds of students from more than forty schools across Nebraska and western Iowa have prepared for months to showcase their poetry.
The NWC’s newest program, part of Writers On Loan, offers therapeutic writing workshops in prisons and detention centers throughout Nebraska
"The in-class exercises were challenging, working with professional writers was eye opening, but the workshops were a paradigm shift for me. To hear multiple points of view in real-time from other aspiring writers was challenging, rewarding, and surprisingly uplifting." Greg Chambers, Seven Doctors Project Participant
"Louder Than a Bomb is, of course, about poetry. Even more than this, Louder Than a Bomb is about generating and sustaining a community of writers that respects one another and reaches out as extra hands are needed." Gina Keplinger, LTAB Alumni and NWC Teaching Artist
"This program encourages accountability with one’s self while building self-esteem. Writing becomes a medicine for the mind, emotions, and inner self." Inmate at the Nebraska Correctional Center for Women on the Writers’ Block program
