IOWA & LITERATURE GO HAND IN HAND
building on a legacy.
Iowa has a thriving literary arts community coupled with a global reputation as a place where many of the world's best writers have come for education, artistic inspiration and to make a home. Our mission is to extend the Iowa literary legacy and to strengthen community among writers, editors, readers, audiences, and all those who honor the power of words.
community, craft & career.
IWH connects writers to the things they need to succeed! By building a vibrant and accessible community, we're bringing writers together and connecting them with the inspiration and support they need to succeed.
Through our workshops and lecture series, we're bringing the best and brightest literary teachers and talent from across the country (and the world!) to help our writers refine their craft and find their voice. When those writers are ready to take the next step with their work, we're here to support them with a host of resources and tools to get them on their way.
