The Krause Series in Contemporary Nonfiction

The Krause Series in Contemporary Nonfiction is made possible by the generous support of the Kyle J. and Sharon Krause Family Foundation. Visiting writers regularly join the Nonfiction Writing Program for a week or a semester at a time. In addition to teaching workshops, seminars, and master classes, visiting writers give readings at various venues in downtown Iowa City. Readings are open to the public.
