In 1992, participants of a "Writing For Profit"
class taught by Sondra Last expressed interest in forming
a writers group. The class met monthly at Central
Community College in Grand Island, Nebraska, with Sondra
Last serving as facilitator. After a year of informal
meetings, regular attendees realized more structure was
needed to retain the interest of area writers. CNWN set
up guidelines for meetings, set dues, established the
print newsletter with Kari Geiger as editor, and
appointed Mary Elizabeth Anderson and Ellen Campbell as
co-chairmen and Sherry Siwinski as treasurer.
Members of the Central Nebraska Writers Network live in Grand Island or the surrounding communities. Some members are published, some aren't. Some want to make writing a full-time career, while others want to concentrate more on the creativity aspect of writing. Members have a variety of writing interests and genres, including fiction, nonfiction, short story, novels, romance, historical, journalism, essays, reminiscence, poetry, Christian, and humor.
meeting begins at 6:30 p.m. with a sharing time. Members
tell about their latest writing-in-progress, report any
items sold or published, mention upcoming writing events,
or share new markets.
