The IWP's online outreach courses are developed in collaboration with U.S. embassies and/or international schools and universities for groups of participants in one or more selected regions. Outreach courses offer live video lectures and discussions; reading and writing assignments, and asynchronous online workshopping. Each instructor is an experienced teacher of creative writing and literature with a strong publication record and a passion for recreating the workshop model within an online learning environment. Supported by the United States Department of State's Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs and the University of Iowa, each outreach course is designed to provide an opportunity for creative writing, community-building, and cultural exchange.
