Nebraska Authors

Daniel Zebert

Zebert is a poet and visual artist who expresses an interest in illustrating his own writing. He has performed at local open microphone events in Lincoln. He describes his impatience with the exploration of rural landscapes that some other Nebraska poets have used to address larger issues of local identity and connectedness: “Too often... poetry from our state is relegated to the safe confines of a rustic farmhouse aesthetic where daily life is viewed outside-in through the lens of chicken-wire fence and ramshackle barnyard doors peeling white flaking paint. The work I create views Nebraska life from inside-out and validates the exploration of the internal struggle we all face under the scrutiny of the status-quo."

Zebert quoted in the Lincoln Arts Council's calendar of events announcement of the 2019 Lincoln Mayor's Arts Awards, at artscene.org

We appreciate corrections and additions to our information about authors, but please read the following guidelines and caveats carefully.

  • The Nebraska Authors database is based on publicly available sources. Unless you are the author contacting us in person, it helps us if you cite the source or sources of your information. We cannot include unsourced information in the database.
  • We may be appreciative of information we choose not to include in the publicly available database.
  • To include an image on an author profile, please send jpg attachment to nebraskaauthors@lincoln.ne.gov. A photo-release agreement is required before the image will be published on this site.
  • Because of the way we are staffed, expect corrections or additions to take time, sometimes up to three months.
  • While we initially included some actual links to external URLs in the database, we will in the future no longer provide functioning links. We will instead record the presence of specific external materials in language that we hope will help intelligent users find it themselves. Web rot, in which actual materials remain online but undergo changes in their URLs, is too demanding in terms of staff time for us to hope to keep external links current.

Please copy, fill out the form below, and email it to NebraskaAuthors@lincoln.ne.gov to suggest a change.
