Still looking for a cool summer program (you know, besides the AWESOME stuff Brian and I are dreaming up for this summer at the library)?
The University of Iowa’s International Writing Program is hosting “Between the Lines: The Writing Experience,” and “invites high-school students of differing nationalities, ages 16 to 19, to the University of Iowa’s campus for a unique summer program where participants develop their creative writing skills while exploring other cultures.” There are two, two-week sessions, each focusing on a different area of the world. This year, the Arabic World will be the focus for the June 22-July 6 session, and Russia will be the focus of the July 13-July 27 session.
Activities include exploring Iowa City as the great City of Literature that it is (just how much do you actually know about literature in/from Iowa City?), creative writing workshops, mentoring from other writers, and collaboration with students from other cultures.
The due date for the application is April 20.
Want more information? Check out the Between the Lines website, the 2013 Between the Lines information page, check out their Facebook page, and click here for the application. The library has some brochures available in the Young Adult area on the 2nd floor.
