Iowa writers groups may be a bit harder to track down than those in larger states, but there is still a thriving community of writers and the groups that serve them.
This collection of writer groups in the Iowa area should not be considered compete and we will continue adding to this list over time, so be sure to check back often.
Iowa Writers Groups:
The Writing Center of the University of Iowa
Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators Iowa
Iowa Writers Group on LinkedIn–This is a group of writers crossing a variety of disciplines including freelance copy writing, technical writing and much more. LinkedIn is a valuable resource for any writing pro but this group of Iowa writers is really taking advantage of all LinkedIn has to offer.
Screw Iowa! This intriguingly-named Screw Iowa! features writing workshops and much more. We were very happy to read about the indie spirit of the founders, who put Screw Iowa! together after an unsatisfactory experience with the University of Iowa. The U of I’s loss is the Iowa writing community’s gain.
