The Free Generative Writing Workshops

Monthly workshops with Iowa's stellar writers and teachers

  • 1 hour
  • PorchLight Literary Arts Center

Service Description

Anyone can write. And everyone who wants to write should have access to the wealth of Iowa City’s Writing Culture. The Free Generative Writing Workshop provides a space for career writers, curious beginners, writers of all income 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. Prompts have run the gamut of writing from Tarot cards, to finding inspiration in the villanelle; from ekphrasis to open letters of resistance to government officials. It has been an adventure, and we are continually inspired by the creative concentration of participants, and the powerful beginnings the workshop generates.
