The International Writing Program (IWP) is a unique conduit for the world's literatures, connecting well-established writers from around the globe, bringing international literature into classrooms, introducing American writers to other cultures through reading tours, and serving as a clearinghouse for literary news and a wealth of archival and pedagogical materials. This site, Collections from the IWP Experience, showcases the creative work developed through the IWP's cultural exchange programs. Funding for the IWP is provided by the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs at the U.S. Department of State, the University of Iowa, and other institutions.

While our most recent collection is featured here, previous collections are housed in our Archive.
