Free Generative Writing Workshop with Elizabeth Weiss

  • The Wesley Center/Public Space One 120 North Dubuque Street Iowa City, IA, 52245 United States (map)

The Free Generative Writing Workshop is Iowa City's only monthly writing workshop that brings together adult writers of all levels to have their imaginations sparked by our area's most talented writers and teachers, at absolutely no cost. The goal is to create a supportive environment where participants can generate new writing and meet others interested in the same. Each month a different talented writer-teacher from our area will invite us to write from an original prompt—and then compose along beside us as we explore where that prompt leads. After writing, we'll have the option to share what we've created and receive feedback.


Bring beloved writing implements, warming drinks, a talisman, and your own wild imagination.



Elizabeth Weiss earned an MFA from the Iowa Writers' Workshop, where she was a Truman Capote Fellow. She has taught writing at the University of Iowa. Her non-fiction has been published on the New Yorker web site, and her debut novel is forthcoming from the Dial Press.
