I hate the Iowa Writers Workshop

May 3, 2009

what’s up is Sandra Cisneros breaking down why she more than hates the Iowa Writers Workshop:

For more reasons to put the Writers Workshop on yr shit list, check out the good old The Iowa Writers Workshop is Totally Corrupt blog at

Know what else is totally corrupt about the Iowa Writers’ Workshop?
The Iowa Writers’ Workshop pretends to be about writing. But I bet you didn’t know that all summer, the Workshop doesn’t even meet. That’s right. For three months, there’s all these Workshoppers just loafing around town, drinking beers and also other beverages. Meanwhile, other people are working in offices. Or building cell phone towers. Or cultivating cheeses so that these lazy-ass writers can have their nachos all summer. Fucking writers and their nachos.

This shit is totally corrupt.

    Gosh, I just hated the Iowa Writers Workshop because all of the alumni write the same.

    That ‘corrupt’ website was written as a joke to iowa bashing by two iowa grads who love the corruptness.

    Thanks for the interpretive help, Dan. You must be an IWW alum, too! See you at your next book launch, pal!
