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.
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 Big Ten Network recently published an article and began airing a commercial about the Iowa Youth Writing Project, part of the MAGID Center for Undergraduate Writing. The IYWP does great work in our community, helping K-12 students find their voices through creative writing.
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.
