Support Creative Writing & Performance Poetry


The Nebraska Writers Collective offers most programs for free to increase access and diversity, but we also make a point of paying writers and poets who serve as our Teaching Artists to help sustain and retain them right here in Nebraska.

Hug2This model works thanks to the foundations, corporations, and donors like you who share our values and vision. We consider you a true partner who understands the impact that improved confidence in writing, meaningful engagement in creative self-expression, and professional mentoring from talented arts practitioners can have on individuals and entire communities.

Please donate today to ensure that we can continue to pursue our year-round work of fostering self-empowerment and community-building through creative writing and performance poetry. The NWC staff, the writers and poets it employs, and the thousands of Nebraskans and Iowans its programs serve each year are grateful for your faith and support.

The Nebraska Writers Collective is a 501(c)(3) non-profit and all contributions are tax-deductible.
