Life of Discovery

Creative Collaboration, Cultural Exchange, and the World’s Largest Amana-Style Rocking Chair

It’s about time we shared some of the highlights of this year’s Life of Discovery exchange between IWP and the China Writers’ Association (CWA). Four writers: Mao Juzhen, Sun Wei, Liu Yewei, and Zhang Yuntao, traveled from China to Iowa City for ten days in late October to meet and collaborate with other writers, participate in cultural exchange, and soak up some of the literary atmosphere of Iowa City.

Writing and Creativity

Life of Discovery 2012

From October 26th through November 2nd, the IWP welcomes four top young Chinese writers to Iowa City as part of the Life of Discovery creative exchange project. The four writers, Mao Juzhen, Zhang Yuntao, Sun Wei, and Liu Yewei, arrive in the United States on Wednesday, less than two weeks after it was announced that Mo Yan (IWP ’04, China) had won the 2012 Nobel Prize in Literature.

Countdown: Only 15 Days Left in Iowa!

After a weekend in Chicago, which included visits to the Frank Lloyd Wright Home, the Ernest Hemingway Museum, the Poetry Foundation, and the Field Museum of Natural History, as well as forays into Chinatown and Little India, the writers returned to Iowa City late Sunday evening. They now have only 15 days left in Iowa before finishing off the 2012 residency with readings and other events in Washington DC and New York City!

The first half of the Life of Discovery project has come to a close in Beijing. To our surprise the jet lag is working to our advantage. The delegation is already sharing images of the exchange.

Enjoy!
