Amy Childress (MFA candidate at the University of Iowa Center for the Book) and Ethan Heusser (Adjunct Assistant Professor of Creative Writing) are excited to announce the return of Diptych: A Book Artists' & Writers' Reading Series! Diptych is a biannual collaborative reading series between the Iowa Writers’ Workshop and the University of Iowa Center for the Book that strives to highlight the intersections of visual poetry and artists’ books. By offering readings and work samples in a cross-disciplinary framework, we hope to build community and establish shared common ground as artists in a world where the line between visual and language arts grows increasingly blurry every day. The event will be held Friday, November 13th from 7-8pm on Zoom. María Carolina Ceballos and Krista Narciso from the UICB and Margaret Yapp and Red Danielson from the Writers’ Workshop will present their work both visually and vocally. The reading will conclude with a brief Q & A. We wish we could see you all in person this semester. But in the interest of providing a safe and accessible environment, we’re shifting to an online format this time around. Even though circumstances force us to the virtual world, we hope to see you and hope you will bring your friends, family, and anyone else who might be interested!
