International Writing Program

Every fall, in collaboration with the Iowa City Public Library, the IWP organizes a weekly series of panels on current literary and non-literary themes. The gatherings are an opportunity to the community at large for a conversation with the international visitors. The panels are later broadcast on The Library Channel and online, and the short papers are posted on the IWP website.
