About the Iceland Writers Retreat
Held for the first time in April 2014, the Iceland Writers Retreat is an event comprised of a series of small-group writing workshops and cultural tours designed to introduce participants to Iceland’s rich literary heritage. In 2015, there will be ten featured authors leading workshops, including Barbara Kingsolver, Adam Gopnik, Linn Ullmann, Sjón, and Taiye Selasi. The Iceland Writers Retreat was named one of the world’s best writers’ retreats by the Sydney Morning Herald, and one of the Top 10 Events to travel for in 2014 by Four Seasons Magazine.
