READERS' SNAPSHOTS WITH "WE THE INTERWOVEN"

This book was created through the Bicultural Iowa Writers' Fellowship, a fellowship experience designed to support emerging bicultural voices in Iowa. This program is the first of its kind in Iowa and one of few across the country that provides both training for awarded writers and the publishing of their writing.
The inaugural year was made possible by a grant from the Iowa Arts Council and the NEA. 
All book proceeds go funding the future of this program. 

“The Bicultural Writers’ Fellowship has been a marvelous vehicle for connecting writers across Iowa with resources in Iowa City. We re-affirm our support of the community-building done by the Iowa Writers’ House, especially in light of the successful inauguration of the BIWF. “
— Hugh Ferrer, Associate Director of the International Writing Program
