The Free Generative Writing Workshops provide a space for career writers, curious beginners, writers of all levels and stages of life. Our goal is to make it easy to meet and learn from some of the most talented writer/teachers living in or passing through Iowa City. Every month a new writer leads a generative workshop, presenting a prompt inspired by their own preoccupations, passions, or interests.
Co-sponsored by Iowa City Poetry and PorchLight Literary Arts Center.
This month's leader: Laura Johnson
Date: Sunday, October 15, 5:30-7 pm Central (3:30 P, 4:30 M, 6:30 E)
Platforms: You're invited to attend online or in person
