Rolf Potts to lead travel writing classes in Iceland, Paris

Our old friend and colleague Rolf Potts is leading not one but two travel writing work shops this year, each among some of the most inspiring settings in the planet, Reykjavik, Iceland and Paris, France, respectively. While the latter is part of Rolf’s normal circuit, this year brings the addition of the Iceland course as part of Angela Ritchie’s Ace Camps.

At a cost of $1950, the Iceland course begins on August 1 and will involve 5 days of travel writing workshops and 7 nights of accommodation with all food provided. Airfare will need to be booked separately. The Paris writing workshop runs from July 1-28.

Here at Gadling we’ve been visited by Rolf before – you might remember his dispatches while on the Marco Polo Didn’t go There book tour, a month-long look inside the world of a traveling author through middle America and the release of a new publication.

Were one to emerge from the writing courses with 10% of the descriptive, gripping narrative power that Rolf possesses, I’d consider the investment worth it. Research and sign up for the Iceland course here, while information on the Paris course can be found here.
