University of Iowa


Winters in Iowa City are often frigid and windy; frequent snow storms drive us to our favorite mittens and shovels. When our hands and ears are numb and our backs are aching, our thoughts turn to the warmth of summer in Iowa City.  In 2019 that means the 33rd annual Iowa Summer Writing Festival in June and July. 


With sidewalks cleared, shovels leaning against the house and hot cocoa in hand, we return to our desks to continue preparing this year's festival.  We anticipate going live with the website on January 23rd.  We will have the catalogue—a much larger task—ready for the mail after mid-February.


Stay warm and keep writing.
