ISWF

The Iowa Summer Writing Festival at the University of Iowa is now accepting registrations for its 2011 sessions. Weeklong and weekend workshops including fiction, poetry, nonfiction and playwriting will run from June 12 through July 29. In all, more than 150 noncredit workshops will be held. Visit the Iowa Summer Writing Festival website for a full list of sessions and biographic sketches of the faculty.

A brochure is available by mail, or register at http://www.continuetolearn.uiowa.edu/UIConferences. Registrants may sign up for only one workshop per session, but they may register for as many sessions as they wish. Payment is required at the time of registration.

The Iowa Summer Writing Festival, based at the world's premier academic center for creative writing for more than two decades, is designed to benefit writers at all levels of experience and achievement. In small groups -- festival classes include no more than a dozen participants -- adult writers of all ages from throughout the country share, read and discuss their work under the leadership of accomplished writer/educators. The atmosphere is constructive and supportive.
