The Villa Diodati workshop met for the first time from Oct. 26 – Oct. 29, 2007. A handful of speculative fiction writers writing in English and living in continental Europe gathered at Schloss Lohrbach. The workshop was organized by Ruth Nestvold, who also runs the list where dates and locations for future workshops are discussed.
Here’s what some of them had to say about the workshop:
