Envisioned by a team of Wayne State College students and their faculty advisor, Dr. Stephanie Marcellus, The Flat Water Stirs was designed to display the work of emerging Nebraska poets. The tireless work of student editors Stephanie Hempel, Derek Pufahl, Thadd Simpson, Courtney Upah, and Liz Ziska transformed the vision of this project into a published collection that showcases the vibrant work of more than forty writers.
