The University of Iowa is bolstering its writing resources in an impressive way as construction began earlier this month on a new building for the renowned Nonfiction Writing Program.

“The NWP’s new building will give the program a bold new presence on campus, and it will give creative nonfiction writers a greater voice in the collection of gorgeous words already being written under many different roofs at Iowa,” says John D’Agata former director of the NWP who spearheaded the effort for a new building for more than a decade.

D’Agata, a 1998 Iowa graduate, was director of the Nonfiction Writing Program (NWP) from 2013 to 2020 and is currently a faculty member in the Department of English.
