The Nebraska Writers Collective is a non-profit that exists to promote creative writing and performance poetry throughout the Midwest. It accomplishes this mainly through writing workshops offered in Nebraska and Iowa, including Louder Than a Bomb: Great Plains, the region's biggest youth poetry festival. Undergraduate interns help with all aspects of the festival: teaching and mentoring youth, organizing and running events, and assisting with workshops and readings. Through their involvement, students are trained in youth mentorship, writing pedagogies, community literacy, antiracist and LGBTQA+ youth programming.
