Lincoln Station

The Nebraska Journalism Trust presents the second annual Flatwater Free Press Festival — an evening as interesting, enlightening, and distinctly Nebraskan as our journalism aspires to be. This year, our annual festival will cap off a convening of local leaders, policy makers, and journalists in partnership with The Atlantic.

2023 Flatwater Free Press Festival

Festival Details

Join us for a meal, meet Flatwater reporters and hear from the people behind some of our stories, including a reading from the state’s Youth Poet Laureate.

A keynote discussion with a top secret special guest will talk about the issues, the news media and — in true Flatwater style — whatever you want to talk about since we’ll ask for your questions.
