If you are a writer between the ages of 16-19, don’t miss out on a opportunity to apply to Between the Lines, a program that brings youth to the University of Iowa for a creating writing program with youth from around the world.
This year features two sessions, one connecting youth from the US with writers from 17 countries in the Near East (June 22-July 6) and the second connecting youth from the US with writers from Russia (July 13-July 27).
Young writers get the chance to be exposed to world literatures and improve their writing skills. Classes and workshops are taught by prize-winning poets and writers.
To create a vital creative community, all writers live in a dorm on the University of Iowa campus and share in evening cultural activities.
The deadline to apply is April 20th! Visit the University of Iowa’s Between the Lines website for more information and to see if you or your child qualifies for a full scholarship.
