Opportunity for graduate and undergraduate students — Available all year

The Writing Lincoln Initiative (WLI) is an organization founded in 2012 by University of Nebraska-Lincoln English department graduate students that seeks to both demystify and facilitate opportunities to enjoy writing. WLI facilitates workshops, writing marathons, and literacy development initiatives in the Lincoln community. We are currently partnering with TRIO Student Support Services and Upward Bound, as well as the Nebraska Writing Project and the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute. We have continued interest in new partnerships and will work with learners of all ages. WLI is also always looking for more members.
