The Best Of Our Knowledge #1146
The Iowa Writers Workshop at the University of Iowa is the oldest and by far one of the most successful creative writing programs in the country. How are we measuring success? Graduates of the program have won virtually every major literary award, including 17 Pulitzer Prize winners, three recent U. S. Poets Laureate, and numerous winners of the National Book Award, MacArthur Foundation Fellowships, and other major honors. Today on The best Of Our Knowledge, we’ll visit with the current director of the Iowa Writers Workshop.
We’ll also spend an Academic Minute felling old...but feeling pretty good about it!
