Courses taught on the UI campus

International Writing Program's core courses are closely related to our Fall Residency. In International Literature Today [181;191/IWP 3191] students read the prose and poetry of the visiting writers, who then offer informal lectures to place their work in a wide variety of literary and cultural contexts. In the International Translation Workshop [181:205/IWP 5205] selected visiting writers collaborate with graduate students of languages and literatures, or creative writing, to bring their texts into English.
