Writing Workshops in Europe this spring

Three months into this baby abroad thing, Writer Abroad's boss is finally allowing her up to nine hours of uninterrupted sleep at night. So with this much rest, Writer Abroad actually has energy to share some news about upcoming writing workshops in Europe this spring:

First off, the Geneva Writers' Conference will take place February 3-5.

Then in March, Writer Abroad will be teaching a course, "Working as a Writer in Switzerland: Journalism, Copywriting, Blogging and more" during Workshop Week at the American Women's Club in Zurich on March 17.

Amal Chatterjee will be teaching a workshop in prose and poetry in Amsterdam from May 11-13th.

And finally, May 18-20, the Zurich Writers Workshop will hold their third writing conference. Featured authors include Diccon Bewes (Swiss Watching) and Sam North (The Old Country). More details and registration will appear soon on their website.

Any workshops to add? Please leave a comment.
