The Friends of Lakeside are pleased to announce that two writers were selected for this 2015's Summer Writer in Residence program at Iowa Lakeside Laboratory; Adam Wright, a dual-degree graduate student at Iowa State University pursuing an MFA in Creative Writing and Environment and an MS in Sustainable Agriculture, and Samantha Collier, an MFA candidate in playwriting at University of Iowa Playwrights Workshop. Both writers spent three weeks respectively at Lakeside Lab courtesy of the Friends of Lakeside Lab and the Iowa Lakeside Laboratory and Regents Resource Center. From leading writing sessions at the Lab's Wild Wednesdays and summer nature camps to performing live readings of their work, both Adam and Samantha immersed themselves in all things "Lakeside." The Friends were delighted to have writers of such caliber on campus.
