Nebraska Stories: Plein Air Poet

Clip: Season 9 Episode 1 | 6m 17s

Britny Cordera is known as the Old Market poet. Especially on weekends, she is a frequent site on the sidewalks of Howard Street, typing at her 1904 Corona portable typewriter. Like an artist painting a canvas in the park, Britny is a plein air poet… taking in her surroundings as inspiration for her poetry. She sits next to a sign, “Pick a topic, get a poem” – and then writes a poem on request.
