Iowa Young Writer’s Studio: Summer 2013

by on January 29th, 2013

This summer seems far away when 3-6″ of snow is on the horizon.

But…

The Iowa Young Writer’s Studio is accepting applications for the Summer 2013 session until February 11.

Stephen Lovely, the director of the program, writes “You know you are a writer because you write even when it’s not an assignment for school, because you read insatiably and aspire to write books as amazing as the ones that make you do that reading/walking shuffle to dinner, because hours slip by unnoticed when you engage your imagination. You write because there is nothing in the world like the feeling you get when you finally finish that poem or short story. You write because it’s fun. You write because you have to. Come meet others like you and share your work at one of the most exciting places to write: the University of Iowa, home to the Iowa Writers’ Workshop, the International Writing Program, and the Center for the Book.”

Way cool! Check out their website for more about their curriculum, daily activities, and application process. And check out their Facebook page!
