Every year University of Nebraska-Lincoln hosts the Nebraska Poetry of Place program. The purpose of this program is to encourage Nebraska students to write poetry about place and to make that poetry more visible. From the statewide submissions, nine to 12 poems are chosen to be published on the Nebraska Writing Project website. Also, selected student poets are invited to read their work at various venues around Nebraska, as well as the Poetry of Place Celebration on May 5, 2017, in the Warner Chambers at the State Capitol in Lincoln, alongside Twyla Hansen and Matt Mason.
Congratulations to the following BT students for being selected!
Shelly Zhang - The Abandoned
Jenna Mu - Nebraska Poem
