The Nebraska Writing Project hosts an annual retreat at Platte River State Park, usually in mid September. At this three-day event, NeWP Teacher-Consultants (with their writing-friendly friends and family) gather for shared meals, writing activities, readings, a writing marathon, and other lively and informal events.  We typically reserve a a duplex park cabin and invite participants to reserve space in it or to make their own accommodations in the park, to camp at nearby Mahoney State Park, or to commute each day from home.  We use this time to reconnect with our NeWP roots, relax in the park’s rustic natural settings, write and share our work, and strengthen our personal and professional connections.
