Planning a Writing Workshop in Zurich

Writer Abroad has long lamented the lack of writing events in Zurich.

Geneva has its Writers’ Group.

Paris has WICE.

Shanghai has Out Loud! The Shanghai Writers Literary Salon.

Nuremberg has the Nuremberg Writers Group.

And Zurich? Well. Writer Abroad is not going to lament any more. She’s going to plan. Along with two other Zurich-based writers, she is co-founding the first ever Zurich Writers Workshop. It will be held October 1-3, 2010. The event will include a fiction workshop, a non-fiction workshop, a literary tour of Zurich (no, we are not all bankers here!), an apéro at the James Joyce pub and more.

Registration will open in mid-August. More details to come soon.

Have you ever planned a writing workshop? Or started a writing group in your new city? Writer Abroad welcomes your planning tips.


  1. OMG! I'm so coming. Not many English writers' workshop in the Heidelberg area!

    Thanks for making my day.

  2. Yay! We'll be thrilled to have you.

  3. What a great idea! Will mention it at our next Nuremberg Writers Meeting... and hopefully I can make it as well... :)

  4. That would be fantastic if you could mention it at the Nuremberg Writers Meeting. Our official website should go live sometime next week. I'll announce it on Writer Abroad as well. Thanks! Hope to see you there.

  5. CHantal, I think that's a wonderful idea and hope you have loads of success with it!
