Study with Writers’ Workshop faculty in three-week graduate-level writing workshops

This summer, the Workshop will offer graduate-level courses for credit (if you are in high school, the Iowa Young Writers' Studio offers summer writing classes).  Earned credits will be recorded on an official transcript. Classes are taught by Writers' Workshop permanent and visiting faculty and follow the graduate workshop format. Admission is based on manuscript review and is open to all applicants, whether currently enrolled in a degree program or not. Deadline to apply for summer 2024 is March 3rd.

For those of you who missed the deadline, check out the Iowa Summer Writing Festival!
