The Mari Sandoz Heritage Society is hosting a two-day workshop for writers of poetry, fiction and non-fiction from May 30-June 1, 2012 on the Chadron State College campus. Writers of all levels, ages 16 and up, are invited to attend. This is an exceptional opportunity for aspiring writers to gain insight from noted authors. Participants have a chance to learn from and discuss writing with established authors in an intimate, casual environment. Classes will be offered in six poetry, fiction, and non-fiction genres.
The workshop sessions will take place on the campus of Chadron State College in scenic northwest Nebraska near the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation. The prairie and hills around Chadron are rich in pioneer history, and the town was founded in 1885. Fort Robinson, twenty-eight miles away, was once a colorful frontier military post and provides a variety of activities amid its historic buildings, including the Post Playhouse, sponsored each summer by the college’s theatre department. Chadron State Park, the Pine Ridge, the Museum of the Fur Trade, the Sandhills of Nebraska, the Hudson-Meng Bison Site, the Agate Fossil Beds, the Black Hills of South Dakota, and the Hot Springs Mammoth Site provide opportunities for exciting day trips, including sight-seeing, fishing, hunting, hiking, mountain biking and skiing.
