 IWP residents Amanda Lee Koe (Singapore) and Simon Urban (Germany) will be joined by an Iowa Writers Workshop poetry student at this free event.

Her first book, Ministry of Moral Panic, will appear later this year.

Simon Urban (fiction writer; Germany) has turned to full–time writing after a career in advertising. He is the author of the novel Plan D (2011); his short stories have been published in several literary journals.
