WorldCanvass Studio: Face to Face

November 1st, 2012


WorldCanvass Studio
his WorldCanvass Studio features participants in a collaborative writing project called "Face to Face," a project aimed at engaging Iowa's underserved youth with the liberating and expressive powers of creative writing.  The renowned International Writing Program (IWP) at the University of Iowa partnered with the non-profit Iowa Youth Writing Project (IYWP) to conduct writing workshops around the state, culminating in a final, full-day event held at the UI on October 27, 2012, where students (aged 12-18) shared their writing and discussed what communicating through words means to them.   The program was recorded at the UI Writers' Workshop; the host is Joan Kjaer of UI International Programs.
