Ólöf Sverrisdóttir, an actress and author with a MA in creative writing, has offered these popular writing courses these past winters with a diverse range of focal points unique to every course.

The course will be based on interesting and memorable happenings from the lives of participants and learning the foundations of the art of storytelling.
