The Eleventh Hour events are free, open to the public
Monday, June 10, 2013

The Eleventh Hour makes the expertise of the Iowa Summer Writing Festival available to the public, free of charge.

The series of events—11 a.m. weekdays June 10 through July 26 (with the exception of the weeks of June 24 and July 1) in Room 101 of Biology Building East on the University of Iowa campus—includes presentations on topics of interest to anyone interested in writing and literature. Fridays are reserved for faculty readings.

The Iowa Summer Writing Festival, based in the only UNESCO City of Literature in the United States, is designed to benefit writers at all levels of experience and achievement. In small groups, adult writers of all ages from throughout the country share, read, and discuss their work under the leadership of accomplished writer/educators.

Many of the workshop leaders are graduates of UI writing programs and include faculty members at other prominent institutions of higher learning.
