For the fifth year in a row the University of Iowa was ranked the No. 1 school for nonfiction in the country by Poets and Writers Magazine.

The UI Nonfiction Writing Program was founded in 1976 and is a three-year graduate program.

It’s very gratifying,” said Professor John D’Agata, Director of the Nonfiction Writing Program, in a UI press release.  “Iowa obviously boasts a rich heritage in the literary arts, not to mention a pretty famous writing program in fiction and poetry.  So it’s encouraging to see the nonfiction program get its due.  Our students are the most accomplished young essayists in the country.  They deserve this.”

The UI program is considered the most selective program in the country.
