I am so honored to be facilitating literary events in Iceland in September. My gracious hosts will be the Reykjavík UNESCO City of Literature program. I am going to present a writing workshop focused on poets of the Harlem Renaissance and contemporary Native American poetry in a fun class called the Literary Mixtape. My goal is to present poems for discussion and ask participants to create their own responses to the work. Then, during the Reykjavík International Literary Festival I am going to host one of my signature Write.Drink.Read. literary happy hours with writing prompts. I can’t wait.
I am so excited to go back to Iceland, to connect with lovely people I met during the first annual Iceland Writers Retreat and to make new friends. This is a dream come true.
