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
