Rita Dove on the International Writing Program

Rita Dove on the International Writing Program


Iowa Writers' Workshop (Dey House)
507 North Clinton Street, Iowa City, Iowa

That was one of the really positive things about Iowa, the fact that the International Writing Program was there. It was great because there were these writers, twenty, twenty-five professional writers from all different countries, writers who had paid their dues, so to speak, and had been working at it a long time. And they gave a seminar every week! A two hour talk about their literature, their literature and their country. It was just all there.
