Any living author born in Nebraska or who has lived in Nebraska at least 10 years may submit a brief bio including a list of their publications and connection to Nebraska for consideration of inclusion in the new edition of Guide to Nebraska Authors.
The 1998 Guide to Nebraska Authors by the Nebraska English/ Language Arts Council (NELAC) is a collection of bios in encyclopedic form that provides a resource to the literary heritage of the state.
NELAC is now collecting information about published writers who were not listed in the first edition and adding to the profiles of those included who continue to publish, and to the profiles of those no longer living. These include authors who have earned recognition for their work including the Pulitzer Prize, the New York Times Best Seller Lists, the National Book Award, and numerous poetry awards including that of the United States Poet Laureate.
