Editors of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln's literary journal plan to tour the state in December in an effort to connect with writers.
Prairier Schooner Editor-in-Chief Kwame Dawes and Managing Editor Marianne Kunkel are scheduled to leave Lincoln on Dec. 8 and return on Dec. 20. Their itinerary includes stops in 12 cities, including Alliance, Broken Bow, Norfolk and Omaha.
Dawes says he wants to remind Nebraskans of what a treasure the journal is and "see if we can generate even more ownership and pride in the publication."
Each visit will include poetry readings by Dawes and Kunkel, followed by a question-and-answer session.
More details on the tour and the journal are available online at prairieschooner.unl.edu.
