The objective of the programme is to bring together a wide range of international and U.S. writers to examine current trends in literature including fiction, drama, poetry and screenwriting and to explore the creative process involved in writing.
Participants will spend 10 weeks in residence at the University of Iowa in Iowa City presenting their work to local audiences, participating in university level workshops and working with translators. This aspect of the program will help these participants bring their countries' literary works to a wider audience and learn more about U.S. literature.
IWP is scheduled to take place at the University of Iowa tentatively from August 24, 2013 to November, 12, 2013.
