      Teen Writing Workshop

      What is the Literary Kiosk? The Literary Kiosk is an amazing machine that spits out flash fiction, poetry, and short essays at the push of a button. It lives in the public library and anyone can access it. It’s like an arcade game for reading (SPOILER: there are no losers)!

      How can you get YOUR writing in this incredible device?

      Come to the teens (grades 7-12) Literary Kiosk writing workshop! Hosted by two University of Iowa students, the workshop will help you turn your literary ambitions into 8,000-character submissions.

      Join Sarah Weeks and Ajla Dizdarevic on 12/7 from 1-2 pm for generative writing exercises and on-the-spot work-shopping. Bring your favorite writing medium—pens, pencils, papers, or laptops—and be ready to write. You can also bring a finished 8,000-character submission!

      Once your piece is ready, you can submit it for publication in the Literary Kiosk—and your friends & family can press the button and hope it pops out! Help us showcase the local writing talent in our city. Join us!
