Iowa Summer Writing Festival 2009 Registration Now Open


The Iowa Summer Writing Festival has announced the opening of its 2009 registration period. Held in the vibrant literary atmosphere of Iowa City (recently named a UNESCO City of Literature), the festival offers many opportunities to meet other writers, share work, explore the bookstores and local literary haunts, as well as enjoy concerts, plays and the museums on campus. Readings by outstanding contemporary voices, hosted by Prairie Lights Bookstore, are always a favorite among festival participants as well.

Offering one-week and weekend sessions throughout the months of June and July, with 140 writing workshops across the genres, the festival is an opportunity for writers to share their work in a constructive and creative environment.
