Spring Writing Marathon

Target Audiences:
The Writing Lincoln Initiative is proud to invite you to our Spring Writing Marathon on Saturday, April 20th from 12- 4 PM in Pioneers Park. Following in the tradition of our Nebraska Writing Project collaborators, this writing marathon invites guests to spend a day exploring nature while writing about their experiences or anything that is important to them.

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.

Email Kathleen Dillon at with questions and RSVP via our Facebook event if you are able.
