Prairie Writers' Workshop

Prairie Writers' Workshop

When Willa Cather received the advice to write about the part of the world she knew best, she turned for inspiration to the Nebraska prairie that impacted her youth. Each year, we host a Prairie Writers' Workshop for beginning, aspiring, or experienced writers. The multi-day event is held in Red Cloud, Nebraska, where Willa Cather spent her formative years. In addition to direct instruction from a professional writer, the workshop incorporates tours of local historic sites relating to Cather's life and work; visits to the Willa Cather Memorial Prairie with time for on-site nature writing; and a reception that provides participants with the opportunity to share their work with the public.
