Listen to the show

Since 1967, over a thousand writers from more than 120 countries have attended the IWP at the University of Iowa. Every fall semester, several dozen established and emerging creative writers—poets, fiction writers, dramatists, and non-fiction writers— come to the University to make time for their writing, take part in Iowa City’s literary culture, and experience daily life in America. For many IWP writers, the residency provides their first direct experience of the United States.

The Lit Show is pleased to feature six writers whose work is as varied as their backgrounds: Genevieve L. Asenjo, Alisa Ganieva, Christopher Mlalazi, Stephanie Ye, Pandora, and Jeffrey Paparoa Holman.
