"It Has Iowa Written All Over It"

Johnson County, Iowa, is the home of the University of Iowa and the Iowa Writer's Workshop, "the first creative writing degree program in the United States and the model for contemporary writing programs" across the country. Writers from the University of Iowa Writer's Workshop, as well as many other poets, authors, playwrights, technical and scholastic writers with Iowa connections have been awarded more than 40 Pulitzer Prizes, National Book Awards, and other significant literary honors. Entitled "It Has Iowa Written All Over It," this integrated public art installation speaks to the importance of writing in Iowa and its significant contribution to literature throughout the world.
