Thirty-nine writers, representing 28 countries, will be in residence at the UI during the next three months as participants in the IWP. The IWP is a unique residency program that each year promotes international understanding by assembling a "United Nations of writing" at the UI. Over the years, more than a thousand writers from 120 countries have completed residencies in the program.
Joint IWP panels will continue most Wednesdays through October.
