2011 UI Summer Writing Festival registration opens

The Iowa Summer Writing Festival at the University of Iowa is now accepting registrations for its 2011 sessions -- the program's silver anniversary. Weeklong and weekend workshops including fiction, poetry, nonfiction and playwriting will run from June 12 through July 29. Visit http://www.continuetolearn.uiowa.edu/iswfest/ 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 festival, based in the only UNESCO City of Literature in the U.S., is designed to benefit writers at all levels of experience and achievement. In small groups, adult writers of all ages from throughout the country share, read and discuss their work under the leadership of accomplished writer/educators. Many of the workshop leaders are graduates of UI writing programs and include faculty members at other prominent institutions of higher learning. Classes remain available until filled, but early registration is recommended. The cost is $560 per week, and $280 per weekend. For additional information contact 319-335-4160 or iswfestival@uiowa.edu.
