Happy 71st Birthday, IUWC!

It's June, and that means Indiana University's Annual Writers' Conference is in full swing! In addition to lounging by the pool and reading our beautiful, brand-new issues of Indiana Review, we here at IR are celebrating an awesome week of events hosted by one of the oldest writing conferences in the country. This week, writers from near and far have come to Bloomington to participate in daily workshops and classes led by esteemed writers Dan Chaon, Tony Ardizzone, Patrick Rosal, Lynda Barry, Julia Story, Jill Godmilow, and Gary Ferguson. The evening reading series is free and open to the public, so if you're in the area, come join us at the Bloomington Playwrights Project tonight at 8pm to hear Lynda Barry and Gary Ferguson read from their work. Tomorrow, conference participants will have an opportunity to share their writing, and Thursday, Dan Chaon and Patrick Rosal will close the conference with what's sure to be a remarkable reading!

To find out more about IUWC, you can visit the website or listen to their feature on Indiana Public Media's Noon Edition.
