IWP Shambaugh House Roundup: Midwinter 2012

In this Shambaugh House Round-Up, the International Writing Program shares news from inside of their office and from their associates, friends, and alumni. They have published a busy midwinter roundup for visitors to peruse. A preview of items include:

Filmmaker Sahar Sarshar, who documented the IWP’s tour of the American South last spring has written about her documentary Writing in Motion: A Nation Divided (and has made the film available) at The Mantle.

This month, IWP Director Christopher Merrill travelled to Afghanistan on behalf of the IWP, and he’s written about his trip for Granta. Merrill was also recently interviewed about his experiences there on Iowa Public Radio’s River to River program.
