Who is the protagonist? | Workshop

Saturday March 20th 2021

The workshop is free of charge but the number of participants is limited to 12.

Please book at the bottom of this page.

How do we picture characters in stories when we don't have illustrations to guide us? We will challenge assumptions we have by illustrating stories together and question where those assumptions come from. Drawing material provided. Age 8-13. The workshop will be lead in Icelandic and English.

Yrsa Þöll Gylfadóttir is a writer. She has published both novels for adults as well as the children’s books’ series My Class (Bekkurinn minn). The series revolve around kids in the same class in an Icelandic school and each book is told from one classmate’s perspective. This way the reader gets to know all the different kids and their different realities, both within the school and outside of it. 


Yrsa has lead writing workshops for children and teenagers before, as well as having worked in an after school program, taught Icelandic and French, guided tourists around Iceland and taught boardgames to children and adults.
