WE PROVIDE THE SPACE, YOU PROVIDE THE COMMUNITY
How can literature foster community? How can it act as a connecting point across cultures and disciplines? Our vision for PorchLight is to provide a space for people of all ages, income levels, and levels of experience to participate in Iowa City's rich literary offerings.
Porchlight provides affordable office space for innovative and community oriented literary non-profits. This year, we are proud to house Iowa City Poetry, PromptPress, and Antelope Lending Library.
Come visit our community salon open 11-3 on Saturday. Inside you'll find information on local and regional literary happenings, a gallery for Image and Text creations, a board for those seeking book or writing groups, a series of specially curated mini libraries, deep chairs, and brewed coffee. Consider us your "Welcome Center" for the City of Literature.
RESIDENCIES AND WRITER'S RETREAT
Upstairs PorchLight provides a furnished apartment for use by local art organizations with established residencies. Alternately the space is available to writers looking for a quiet yet inspiring get away in which to write. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to book your stay.
PorchLight offers a sustainable year round living space for a literary artist with an interdisciplinary focus.
Our Community Salon is available to rent for events meetings and workshops. Evening events can accommodate groups of 40. Our daytime workshops or meeting space can accommodate 15.
