The Iowa Youth Writing Project (IYWP) is an arts outreach organization based at the University of Iowa that empowers, inspires, and engages K-12 youth throughout the state using language arts and creative thinking.
“As someone who does not inherently enjoy writing, I was very much hesitant to enroll in Writing and Community Outreach,” honors student Josh Hutton admits. He goes on to say, “My hesitations were quickly dismissed, however, because the class was much more than that.”
Amid COVID-19 self isolation and social-distancing measures, the Iowa Youth Writing Project has halted a majority of its routine programs and services. As the organization transitions to a virtual format, its focus is on inspiring a sense of creativity among K-12 students in Iowa.
The Iowa Youth Writing Project invites you to join us on the evening of Saturday, May 21, 2022, from 5 to 9 p.m. for Field Marks, a celebration of youth environmental writing and fundraiser dinner at the Cangleska Wakan nature preserve in Johnson County.
