Creative Writing Workshop

Advanced Thai Creative Writing Workshop at the Neilson Hays Library on March 20, 2019.

Neilson Hays Library and the US Embassy are organizing a one-day creative writing workshop on March 20 featuring notable Thai authors who will share tips of their craft and exchange ideas with emerging Thai writers to help them develop their writing.

The workshop is organized with the support of the US Embassy and we hope that it will encourage Thai writers to consider application for the International Writing Program at the University of Iowa. Participants are Thai writers who have at least one published work in print in Thai and/or English language, as well as Thai-English literature translators.
