SIX CORNERS OF NEBRASKA

A Nebraska 150 Commission Signature Event 

(Presented by the Nebraska Writers Guild)

 

Six Corners of Nebraska is the Nebraska Writers Guild’s gift to all Nebraskans celebrating our 150 years of Statehood. It consists of a series of six events - one near each of Nebraska's six corners - Chadron (Northwest), Norfolk (Northeast), Bellevue (Southeast), McCook (Southwest), North Platte (Big Springs Corner), and Kimball (Panhandle Southwest). These events will have speakers and workshops you can sign up for. These occur one per month, on the first Sunday of each month, March through August.
