🖋 Áslaug and Fanney are in charge of the workshop, but they are both passionate about creative writing, have worked on mental health issues in Iceland. Both of them have experienced firsthand not having a role in life and dealing with hardship. They themselves are taking their first steps in autobiographical writing and would like to invite other women along. The workshop will be a safe space where participants will experience peer support, empathy and encouragement.

🖋 No previous writing experience required. Participation is free and all that is required is to bring either a laptop or a note pad along with pencils or pens.

🖋 Registration is preferred, but it takes place below on the event's website: https://borgarbokasafn.is/en/event/literature/autobiographical-writing-…
