Welcome to the IYWP WikiEdit


The Iowa Youth Writing Project aims to join Iowa City’s unique literary heritage with its community, fostering creativity and writing among the children of Iowa City and surrounding communities. It provides writing, tutoring, and publishing opportunities to Iowa’s school-aged children and teens.

The IYWP Wiki is a collection of activities, lesson plans, and other programming ideas brought together in an easy-to-navigate space to facilitate the creation of fun and original creative writing opportunities for young writers, both for events organized by the IYWP and for other aspiring educators.
