IWP Media Gallery


Featured Media

The IWP Media Gallery gathers and makes searchable audiovisual records of the nearly five decades of IWP’s programming. Scores of readings, performances, panel presentations, interviews, documentaries of the program’s reading tours—both overseas and in the US—and on-line teaching materials can be located though the search functions below. The oldest materials date to the early 1970s. Many are accessible through the IWP Digital Archive of the UI Main Library, which also houses the IWP paper archive (1967 to 2000) in its Special Collections. Since 2006, significant funding for the program’s audiovisual documentation has been provided by the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA) at the U.S. Department of State.
