This year the International Writing Program's Fall Residency is welcoming 31 writers from 28 countries around the world. They're not just novelists, poets, playwrights, translators, and filmmakers...they are book publishers, recorded musicians, film editors, slam poets, librettists, playwrights, human rights workers, BBC journalists, and art curators.
The IWP is providing over 100 free public events that will allow you to meet this fascinating group of residents. These include readings, panel discussions, film screenings, and Global Express, which features actors performing the writers' work on stage.
