Free Generative Writing Workshop

Looking at visual art opens writers to new possibilities of form. In this workshop we’ll explore Joseph Cornell’s surreal shadow boxes, experiment with the juxtaposition of found objects and cut up images in order to create writing rich with startling metaphor. Writers in any genre are welcome.

Now in its fourth inspiring year, the Free Generative Writing Workshop is Iowa City’s only monthly writing workshop that brings together adult writers of all levels to have their imaginations sparked by our area’s most talented writers and teachers, at absolutely no cost. The goal is to create a supportive environment where participants can generate new writing and meet others interested in the same. Each month a different talented writer-teacher from our area will invite us to write from an original prompt — and then compose along beside us as we explore where that prompt leads. After writing, we’ll have the option to share what we’ve created and receive feedback.
