About Us

The IYWP is a K-12 literacy outreach nonprofit founded by graduates of the Iowa Writers’ Workshop 2010 that aims to join Iowa City’s unique literary heritage with Iowa’s larger community by empowering, inspiring, and educating youth through language arts and creative thinking. The IYWP provides one-of-a-kind writing, publishing, and creative learning opportunities to Iowa’s children and teens. To ensure that all young people can participate, the IYWP provides programs no cost, thanks to the time, energy, and creativity of IYWP volunteers, partnerships with local organizations and institutions, and the generosity of community members.
