Grant Wood Writer's Forum Registration
Building on the community of Grant Wood enthusiasts who participated in the recent "Grant Wood Through Local Eyes" series, and in commemoration of Grant Wood’s upcoming 130th birthday in February, the Anamosa Library and Learning Center is now offering a weekly, online Grant Wood Country Writers Forum beginning Tuesday, December 1st at 7 p.m. and ending on February 2nd.
The online forum offers fun and interactive opportunities to learn, share, write and connect safely online throughout the winter weeks ahead. Recent "Grant Wood Through Local Eyes" presenters/authors Elaine Mattingly, Dorothy Bunting Montgomery, Paul C. Juhl and Barbara Feller are back to provide breakout sessions, focusing on insights, resources and strategies for writers and Grant Wood enthusiasts. The sessions will include a lively group writing component, and those who choose to write individually in response to Grant Wood artworks will have ongoing opportunities throughout the sessions to share.
Participants will learn about select Wood artworks like Plaid Sweater, Dinner for Threshers, Death on the Ridge Road and New Road from historians and authors Paul C. Juhl and Barbara Feller. They will also be on hand throughout the series to engage in conversations in breakout sessions about all things Grant Wood. Novelist and writer Dorothy Bunting Montgomery, along with Ms. Mattingly will provide insights and techniques for getting those creative juices flowing—all easily within reach of anyone who wants to try their hand at writing creatively. Those who wish to observe, listen and connect with other enthusiasts are welcomed. The series has space for up to thirty writers (limited due to time constraints for sharing writings throughout the series). The series ends with a virtual reading event and writers will explore ways to bring their finalized pieces into the public sphere, including online at
and in print formats.
Please use this form to register for our online Grant Wood Writer's Forum. Everyone who registers will receive a link to the Zoom event during the week before the first Forum. If you register after that first forum, we will email you the link ASAP.
