A Gift for Writing
Novelist James Patterson, who has sold more than 350 million books worldwide, made a gift in 2016 to fund five scholarships for current Iowa Writers’ Workshop students; this year he is planning to add five more. Ultimately, the Patterson Family Foundation will be covering tuition for ten writers in the creative writing program.
