Rolf to teach writing classes this summer in Iceland, Paris

icelandrolfAs I announced earlier this year, I will once again be teaching a creative nonfiction workshop at the Paris American Academy during the month of July (this Paris workshop also entails fiction and journal-writing classes, taught by novelists John Biguenet and Lauren Grodstein).

New to my teaching slate in 2010 is an intensive travel-writing workshop in Reykjavik, Iceland from August 1-8. Organized in conjunction with Angela Ritchie’s ACE Camps, this small-group workshop is a great way to experience Iceland while fine-tuning your travel-writing skills in the company of other writers. Class size will be limited to 10 people.

I will also be speaking and/or serving as a panelist at a number of events this spring in various parts of the U.S. A rundown of upcoming events is as follows:


  • March 30th, 2010, Lawrence, 7:00pm
    University of Kansas, Mallot Hall. Lecture on travel writing and long-term travel (non-students welcome). Queries can be sent to tlorenz [at]



  • April 27th, 2010, Springfield, 7:00pm
    Wittenberg University, Hollenbeck Hall. Lecture on travel writing and long-term travel (non-students welcome). Rolf will also speak in English classes on the 26th and 27th. Queries can be sent to kdixon [at]
