Director Amy Margolis's Reflections on the Iowa Summer Writing Festival

In the July edition of Spectator@IOWA, Iowa Summer Writing Festival director Amy Margolis discusses what makes the festival successful year after year. She also talks about the types of classes offered by the festival and the part Iowa City as a community plays in the festival's success. The festival attracts large numbers of people looking to sharpen their writing skills each year. Margolis states that she is continually amazed at how quickly people pick up good writing habits after attending just a few workshops.

Margolis has been working for the ISWF for 20 years, beginning as a graduate assistant while she was a student in the Writers' Workshop. Click Here for the full interview.
