Here is an article I found on another state forum on C-D today that includes Iowa City.

"The Iowa Writers' Workshop at the University of Iowa in Iowa City draws hundreds of aspiring writers to earn MFAs to the Midwest. Thanks to historic alums, professors and visitors — literary legends from Dylan Thomas to Robert Frost have walked the campus — the UNESCO City of Literature has a boast-worthy past and present.

If you get tired of playing around with words, the Iowa Arts Festival and Iowa City Jazz Festival brings hundreds of local and national artists to Iowa City each year."

Another interesting article describing Iowa City in more detail including "The Iowa Jazz Festival being one of the Top Ten Jazz Festivals in the country."

The Writer's Workshop is known & well-regarded in literary circles around the globe.
The extra layer of cultural activities that it brings to Iowa City is a feather in the cap to the university & the city.
If you can't find enough to interest you or keep you busy on the cultural side of things in the area, you aren't looking for it or are not informed.

I'm glad this thread got bumped. I'm in the process of making a list of festivals, workshops, and other events to attend. At this rate, I'll need an entire year off! (;

If you do compile such a list, you might want to message golfgal. She created a thread in the Iowa forum that asked for destination & event suggestions.

It's in a hard copy notebook, but I'll keep that in mind and type it up for the forum at a later date.

That's a great idea ...

The sticky, "Helpful Iowa Website" has a few listings but maybe update the thread title to something more descriptive? Just a thought ...
