Writer and illustrator Megan Herbert has attended the Iceland Writers Retreat three times. In addition to leading a popular free workshop on screenwriting at this year’s event, she was live drawing details from her workshops and other parts of the conference.
Dorothyanne attended the Iceland Writers Retreat for the first time this year.
In a personal blog about the experience, she writes: “To say it was life-changing sounds trite and overblown, but it was so for me. … It feels intimate, safe, friendly, warm, and oh so supportive.”
Dorothyanne discusses her workshops, which were led by an “overwhelmingly spectacular” faculty.
Chris Cleave, award-winning British novelist, was a faculty member at the fourth Iceland Writers Retreat. In his typical self-deprecating yet good-natured humour, he led a workshop on criticism: how to get it, how to seek it out, and what to do with it once you have it.
The fourth Iceland Writers Retreat has just come to an end. While we sift through the photos and memories (a detailed post will be coming soon!), check out this column by our faculty member David Lebovitz, who led small-group workshops on putting personality into food writing and on how to write a cookbook.
