Get Inspired at the 2014 Iceland Writers Retreat

Writing enthusiasts are invited to participate in this special four-day event in Reykjavik in April 2014.

Love to write? Want to publish? Already a published author? Come to Reykjavik, April 9-13, 2014 for the Iceland Writers Retreat!

Fiction and non-fiction enthusiasts are invited to participate in a series of workshops and panels led by an esteemed team of international authors. Between intimate workshops and lectures, we’ll offer the chance to tour the spectacular Golden Circle, sit in the cozy cafés of Reykjavik, soak in hot geothermal pools, listen to new Icelandic music, and learn about the country’s rich literary tradition.

The Iceland Writers Retreat will be based out of Icelandair Hotel Reykjavik Natura, a recently renovated, modern four-star hotel next to a popular wooded area, just a 20-minute walk from the city center and five minutes from a geothermal beach.

Workshops will be led by published writers from around the world whose works feature a theme of travel or journeys. These include Pulitzer Prize winning author Geraldine Brooks, New Yorker staff writer Susan Orlean, Ryerson University professor and author Randy Boyagoda, award-winning memoirist Iain Reid, National Geographic Digital Nomad Andrew Evans, Scotiabank Giller Prize winner Joseph Boyden, acclaimed travel writer Sara Wheeler, and Man Booker Prize nominee James Scudamore.

The Iceland Writers Retreat is made possible by founding sponsors Icelandair and Icelandair Hotels. We are endorsed by the Icelandic Ministry of Education, Science and Culture, Reykjavik UNESCO City of Literature, the City of Reykjavik, the US Embassy in Iceland, and the Icelandic Literature Center.
