About the event

Now offered in person and online, 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: Sarah Minor

Date: Sunday, May 21st, 5:30-7 pm Central (3:30 P, 4:30 M, 6:30 E)

Attend in person or online. In person, join us at PorchLight Literary, 1019 E. Washington, Iowa City.
