WLI Fall Writing Marathon

12:00 pm–4:00 pm
Pioneers Park Nature Center

The Writing Lincoln Initiative is proud to invite you to the WLI Fall Writing Marathon! Following in the tradition of our NeWP collaborators, this writing marathon invites guests to spend a day exploring nature while writing about their experiences or anything that is important to them. Bring a notebook, a pen or pencil, and join us for a day of nature and writing. There is no need to be an expert to participate in this event, and as such, we highly encourage you to attend and to invite others — students, colleagues, friends, family members, etc.

The WLI Fall Writing Marathon will take place on Saturday, November 12th, from 12 - 4pm at Pioneers Park in Lincoln, NE. We ask that all attendees first meet at the Pioneers Park Nature Center (3201 South Coddington, Lincoln, NE 68522) at noon to begin the marathon. After a brief overview of what writing marathons entail, attendees will break into small groups that together, will explore the park, pause to write, and share that writing with each other. One of those groups will function as an accessibility group, which will stick to sidewalks, flat planes, and the sections of the park more suited for those with mobility issues.

We hope this event encourages individuals a chance to experience the world as writers, space to generate new material, and an opportunity to share their writing with others within a supportive community. If you plan on attending, we ask that you please RSVP via our Facebook Event (link below) and share with all you feel will be interested.
