Registration is now open for the 5th Annual Zurich Writers Workshop which will take place May 23-25, 2014.
Writer Abroad co-founded the Zurich Writers Workshop back in 2010 when she learned a lesson about living abroad: if you want something in your adopted country or city and it doesn’t exist, sometimes you have to create it yourself.

Five years later, English-language writing support in Zurich–thanks to her workshop, and also to Nuance Words–actually exists. In fact, one British writer living in Zurich who Writer Abroad spoke to last weekend said she didn’t want to move back to London because the writing environment in Zurich was so good. Writer Abroad considered this the best compliment she’s ever gotten.
Anyway, this year, the Zurich Writers Workshop will feature two different courses. The first, taught by Anne Korkeakivi, will focus on both short and long fiction. The second workshop, taught by Chantal Panozzo, aka Writer Abroad, will discuss ways to make a living as an international creative person.
On May 23, Orell Füssli The Bookshop will host a reading featuring the two authors. This reading is free and open to the public.
