During each fall residency, two academic courses connect UI students with the IWP writers: the undergraduate-level International Literature Today (181:191 / IWP: 3191), and the graduate-level International Translation Workshop (181: 205 / IWP:5205). Check ISIS for additional fall and spring courses.
In collaboration with academic institutions worldwide, the program also offers English-language creative writing workshops around changing literary themes, in the format of distance learning courses. Though spaces are limited, anyone anywhere in the world may enroll with the instructor's permission. Contact the distance learning coordinator at iwp-distancelearning[at]uiowa.edu for additional information.
