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: Lisa K. Roberts

Date: Sunday, Feb 19, 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.
