Write your own story.

The University of Iowa is nationally known as the ‘writing university.’ If you are a first-year student interested in writing, this community is for you.  You will explore and connect with writing resources available at Iowa to prepare you for success, produce your own literary magazines, and attend local readings. Students in this community also have the opportunity to work on the InkLit (a literary journal created by LLC students) publication. Students in this community have the opportunity to connect with the Magid Center for Undergraduate Writing and the Dey House, home of the Iowa Writers' Workshop.

This Living Learning Community requires students to take an academic course connected to the community. You will be pre-enrolled in the LLC course, which will be included in your academic schedule prior to summer Orientation.

This community is open to all students.
