Five reasons to attend the Iceland Writers Retreat

Five reasons to attend the Iceland Writers Retreat

DIYMFA published a list of five reasons to attend the Iceland Writers Retreat, by 2017 participant Sara Letourneau. “I came home from this trip inspired, clear-headed, and ready to return to writing after a month where my confidence in my craft had pretty much shattered. And for that, I am profoundly grateful for the IWR experience,” she writes.

Sara’s top five reasons to attend are:

  1. A Wide Variety of Workshops, Led by Internationally Acclaimed Writers
  2. It’s Smaller Yet More Global Than Most Writing Conferences
  3. Excursions in Reykjavik and the Icelandic Countryside
  4. Immersion in Iceland’s History and Culture
  5. The Camaraderie and Shared Understanding Between Writers

Dorothyanne discusses her workshops, which were led by an “overwhelmingly spectacular” faculty.
