Frank Conroy passes on

Frank Conroy, head of the Iowa Writer’s Workshop for 18 years, has died of colon cancer at 69. His best-known work was Stop-Time: A Memoir.

Eyeshot is posting Letters to Frank Conroy From His Students. Eyeshot editor Lee Klein, a current writing student at Iowa, explains in email that some of the letters “were originally printed in a book given as a
gift for his retirement,” and others are new.
