Summer Writing Festival adds sessions July 26-Aug. 1

The Iowa Summer Writing Festival, which was forced by the floods to cancel several sessions in June, has added an additional weekend (July 26-27) and weeklong (July 27-Aug 1) session to the end of its 2008 schedule.

The festival, which is presented by the University of Iowa Division of Continuing Education, scheduled the additional sessions to provide opportunities for registrants whose sessions were canceled, as well as those who had not yet registered.

The added sessions will include a series of free public events at 11 a.m. Monday through Friday, July 28 through Aug. 1, in Room 101 of the UI Biology Building East. Known as "Elevenses," these hourlong presentations feature issues of special interest to writers with a different speaker each day.
